BenM added a comment to T4366: GPGME Key Generation Error .

GPGME 1.12.1-beta43 is nowhere near the current master. Current is around 1.12.1-beta130 (or above) and beta 43 would've been months ago, probably early November or late October.

BenM added a comment to T4191: gpgme python bindings test t-callbacks.py fails on 32-bit platforms.

I'll deploy one on AWS somewhere briefly once I've replaced a certain external keyboard, there will almost certainly be an existing image of some Linux distro in the AWS marketplace and I'd be very surprised if it took more than an hour or two of compute time to confirm.

Ooh, nice catch @dkg, I just stepped through each of your changes and it all looks good. I'll tweak the relevant sections of the HOWTO dealing with this in the next few days (I need to replace a keyboard here before properly diving back in) and then close this case once done.

While this is now ideal for Debian, it may cause conflicts with other downstream vendors with slightly different needs to build their packages. In particular the FreeBSD ports and/or pkg system.

Nesting the op_genkey() calls inside try/except statements with the exceptions being caught as "oops" and otherwise "oops" being set to None provides a means of checking whether the 2099 expiration is a problem and 2037 is not.

Well, I guess this answers my question in T4192 regarding why op_genkey was in use.

BenM added a comment to T4192: python gpg segfaults when first parameter to gpg.Context().op_genkey() is None or otherwise malformed.

Interesting, I'll look into it, but is there a reason for using op_genkey instead of create_key (optionally with create_subkey and/or key_add_uid)? The latter should be easier and more pythonic.

BenM added a comment to T3354: gpgme only builds against two versions of python at once.

This should already be possible, iirc the Arch Linux maintainer patched
it in. I believe there is a 'prepare' target that takes care of all the
preparations (duh), and then you can build for every Python version by
executing the Python build system with the Python version of your choice.
