GPGME performance: Allow single component gpg-conf loads
Closed, ResolvedPublic


On my fairly fast Windows test system it takes 3 seconds to call gpgconf_conf_load

This is a bit much if you only want to check a single option (which is probably the most common usecase).

It would be good if we could add a call to only load the configuration of a single component and not all. Or figure out how to speed up the gpgconf calls on windows.

In QGPGME which is used by GpgOL and Kleopatra we have solved this by loading the configuration only once and then reusing it. I see no need to change something in gpgconf here.
