Kleopatra: Suppress errors of WKD lookups
Testing, NormalPublic

Description

This is a spin-off of T6014: Failed to search on certificate server. The error returned was: Syntax error in URI..

For example "foo@x500.bund.de". But what I meant is that code handling WKD errors that show an information to the user should not exist. All WKD lookup errors in Search should be silently discarded. Because the user does not know that he is performing a WKD search so she should not be informed about errors in that.

Looking up "foo@x500.bund.de" in Kleopatra results in a "General error" being reported.

I agree with that task. Errors should be logged but not exposed to the user. I like the decryption / verification audit log we have now for some years (quite new) which allows users to view the stderr of gpgme jobs. Something like that -> Perfect. I think we need this for Import also and basically for every job. If you had an idea, maybe in the status bar or so, to indicate that more error information would be available. That would be my dream solution.

ikloecker added a project: Restricted Project.

Lookup on server should no longer report any errors caused by a failed WKD lookup.
