Key import on a machine with date moved back
Open, LowPublic


I'm opening this issue so that this bug report doesn't get lost.

So, the question is how can we improve that? In general I'd like to
import the key-pair as if there were no time issues. Maybe there's a
command line argument to ignore them?

Or maybe it's already fixed/implemented in 2.1?

2.1 does have --ignore-time-conflict, but i agree with you that it might
make more sense to tolerate a "typical" clock skew of a few seconds or
minutes by default.

Perhaps it'd make more sense to have a "tolerate-clock-skew" option that
takes a time value, with some sensible default like 10min.
