gpgme should support creating clearsigned messages
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Some mailing list software (such as Google Groups) mangles PGP/MIME messages in a way that invalidates the signature. This requires the use of clear-text signatures for such mailing lists. gpgme should therefore support creating such signatures.

Hmm, why not use:

gpgme_op_sign (ctx, in, out GPGME_SIG_MODE_CLEAR)

As Werner wrote, this is already possible. The next time please consult the extensive documentation of gpgme before opening a ticket.

To make it easy to try out, I have added support for clear text signatures to the test runner run-sign.
