  • KDF DO setup support done: T3823: gpg frontend support to setup KDF DO
  • I realized that Gnuk tool requires changes to support KDF DO. Like the tool of firmware update.
  • Kernel bug: https://www.spinics.net/lists/kernel/msg2757378.html
    • It has been there (>= 10 years?), and it will stay there.
    • So, the workaround in scdaemon which use pipe makes sense. (Now enabled)
  • libgpg-error
    • yat2m build & installation
    • Today, I realized that I en-bugged Makefile problem for portability. Will fix soon.
    • powerpc 64 support
  • Possibly I'll visit France on May for hacker culture event. Not yet fixed.

Thanks for the report. Andre and me had the telco already.

BTW, This entry is for October and not March 26. You probably used this because I edited this event to set the time back to non-DST.

Something is messed up. This is E376 but at least @gniibe's comment seems to belong to E367 from March 26.

Last week:

  • UIF flag handling fix for GnuPG
  • gpgrt-config
    • something like gpg-error-config which support pkg-config .pc file
    • very simple one, not intended to support full features
  • gpg-error.m4
    • Now, it also detects gpgrt-config so that configure can use it for detecting cflags and ldflags which used to do with *-config.
  • *.m4 (libgcrypt, libassuan, libksba, ntbtls, npth)
    • Finally supports all intended cases of cross build
      • GNU standard way with prefix: for example, --prefix=/usr/x86_64-w64-mingw32 --host=x86_64-w64-mingw32
      • Debian and its derivatives, multiarch: for example, --prefix=/usr --libdir='${prefix}/lib/i386-linux-gnu' --host=i686-linux-gnu (on x86_64 machine)
      • Gento/Fefora/Arch/... multilibs

This week:

  • I should release Gnuk for FST-01SZ, finally.
  • Shall I put *.m4 (libgcrypt, libassuan, libksba, ntbtls, npth) into gnupg/m4 in master?
  • consider backporting libgcrypt.m4 and libgcrypt.pc file to 1.8.x.

Last week:

  • Improved the keycache in GpgOL and I'm using it more now.
  • Fixed an encoding issue in GpgOL by using gpgrt_w32_iconv
  • Struggling with system wide configuration of GpgOL and Windows Registry redirection.
  • Some CRL cache debugging on windows. T3967 T4182

Next week:

  • Add a testsuite for gpgme-json and maybe some more command.
  • Keep working on CRL issues (got feedback that it still does not work in the clients setup -.-)
  • Probably some more GpgOL work.

Last week:

  • Worked on several bugs forwarded from an IBM^WRedhat Covertry scan.
  • Libgcrypt now always uses getrandom and will never block except right after system startup.
  • Released Libgcrypt 1.8.4.
  • A bit of work on the wks-tools
  • Updated gnupg's speedo installer script
  • Worked on RFC4880bis
  • Implemented v5 signatures in GnuPG

This week:

  • Look forward to a 2.2.11 release
