ship gpgscm and necessary *.scm files from gpgrt
Open, LowPublic


T4545 was about gpgscm not being shipped in usable form in GnuPG.

In it, @werner wrote:

gpgscm will anyway be moved to libgpg-error and then installed as part of that package

So this ticket is to track that process. Currently, the gpgrt/libgpg-error tarballs don't even ship the gpgscm/ directory. So the steps are probably something like:

  • include it in the tarball
  • uncomment the --enable-gpgscm flag in
  • ensure that it matches the version of gpgscm that currently ships in gpg itself (are there fixes that need to be cherry-picked?)
  • make the gpgscm binary distributable, along with its necessary *.scm files

It is on on my private todo list but thanks for opening a puplic issue for tracking.
