Angel added a comment to T5444: "gpg: key generation failed: Unknown elliptic curve" from "Key-Type: default".

Interesting. So the problem is not actually the Key-Type, but that the default key-type requires a Key-Curve parameter which has no value by default

Angel added a comment to T6975: The option --default-key gives up too early if there are multiple matches.

Ingo, I concede it might be considered a bug on Request Tracker that it does not allow to specify the key as a fingerprint (or calculates it automatically from the email instead of relying on gpg doing it), but you generally want to keep expired keys around for decryption.

Angel reopened T6975: The option --default-key gives up too early if there are multiple matches as "Open".

Sorry, Werner, but I have to disagree on this. Specifying them by fingerprint only works if you have a specific field for the key (including the case where you are just it on the config file).

Angel added a comment to T6946: gpgv: Help automatic reject too short keys.

Do note there could be subkeys as well.

Angel added a comment to T5444: "gpg: key generation failed: Unknown elliptic curve" from "Key-Type: default".

I recently stumbled upon this as well.

Angel added a comment to T6972: Explicitly deprecate --use-embedded-filename -- it is hazardous.

I agree. Any automatic use of the embedded filename will be potentially problematic security-wise. The only safe use is probably as a value in an interactive dialog, and even then, only if the user doesn't accept a dangerous value.

Angel added a comment to T2759: Misleading error message when trying to sign with an expired key.

This was reported again 3 years later as T4704, and finally fixed in gnupg-2.4.4, released last week.

Angel added a comment to T6501: Check use of write in gpgme's Python bindings.

it's not hard to fix that header to actually provide a sensible write(), avoiding the issue listed on the mailing list, where there was no return to check:

Angel added a comment to T6473: Kleopatra: "Change Validity" does ignore the option "Also update the validity period of the subkeys".

Option #1 is good from a descriptional POV, but in most cases both the main key and the subkeys will be expired, so it would end up not updating any subkey.

Angel added a comment to T5367: PDF signed with --clearsign has image distorted..

The surprising thing is that it works at all. I wouldn't be surprised if certain would simply reject it as "not a pdf" given that the "%PDF-1.x" marker isn't at the beginning.

It may be preferable to get that under 4.0 or later, so you don't need to contact every contributor again if in some years there is intention to switch to a newer version released by Creative Commons.

Angel added a comment to T5323: adduid and key expiration oddity in gpg-wks-client.

Maybe have gpg-wks-client(or also --export-filter) print a warning if the filtered result has a key expiration different than the original key? That seems the simplest way tp approach the problem.

Angel added a comment to T4953: Some email recipients respond with: hey, why did you send me an empty mail...?.

Are they actually zero-byte mails, or is the content mungled as an attachment? (which those replying probably overlooked, and would still be hard to interpret, as it would containe MIME parts)
