Kleopatra: Allow "Change password" for private key with offline primary
Testing, NormalPublic


Currently, we do not allow password change in Kleopatra for keys where the primary key is offline.

For users who keep their primary offline it would be a usefull feature. Especially in the case where you use a key as a shared group key. Otherwise the whole group would have to use the password given by the key-creator, as typically the (VSD) users would not be comfortable with the command line.

Event Timeline

I disabled this for offline keys because I erroneously assumed that one would need the primary key for changing the password. We can simply replace the check for the primary secret key with a check for any secret subkey that's stored on disk.
