gpa searches for gpg2keys_ldap, should be dirmngr_ldap
Open, NormalPublic


I was searching through gpa to hunt down a possible bug and I saw that the configure script looks for 'gpg2keys_ldap gpgkeys_ldap', when my gnupg package provides dirmngr_ldap. Debian 9 also has dirmngr_ldap. I don't knowingly have a way to test if it should be one or the other, but I got the impression that the key lookup has been delegated to dirmngr and the name of the binary changed.

Well, gpa needs to use gpgme's interface for receiving and sending keys. The use of the helper programs an old hack.
