bernhard added a comment to T4766: gpgme_signature_t relies on `unsigned long` for signature creation and expiration times.

Just added a comment to T4826 how to move forward, if this is still interesting for parties. Right now (from my point of view) a pubkey with an expiration date beyond 2106 is not a sensible key configuration, so the use to motivate a chance in this area would need to be argumented better.

This issue, as well as T4766 has the challenge that there is a disagreement about the usefulness of the use case, as far as I can see.

bernhard added a comment to T4974: timeout for pinentry too short for key-generation, losing previous entries.

To explain the use case, I've started coming up with a good passphrase and this took a bit of time with a pencil and paper in front of me. When I wanted to type it in, it was too late. Thus I guess that some people will look up good rules of passphrases or at least make sure they can remember the one they are typing in.

Taking a look at other GNU manuals, both GNU make and GNU Bison have a better phrasing,
so I suggest the Bison way (https://www.gnu.org/software/bison/manual/html_node/index.html):

This manual (7 December 2019) is for GNU Bison (version 3.5), the GNU parser generator.

@werner
It is good practive to open a public ticket for many projects, because otherwise the XMPP users don't know if the fact is already known, reported or being worked on. Alternatively: Let us document the procedure in public what someone should do, if the xmpp server ist down or the certificate is expired. What is that procedure?

bernhard added a comment to T3904: Clarify suggestion for diskperf.

Got the question about this note from a user (in a internal email) and I see the problem that users do not have enough information to decide this. They do not know what the consequences of this note are (and suspect it to be the cause of error of they see it together with other problems). So to me it is more than a 'wish' as it will generate questions and leaves users in a situation where they cannot progress by their own in most of the situations.

When disabling CRL checks, you expose the user to drawbacks by outdated or revoked certificates. While I agree that improving implementations to not check the validation information too often or even build proxies is a good idea, I have a tendency to keep crl checking enabled for CMS crypto operations because it seems to be a lesser drawback.

If you are encountering the problem, please

  1. Check that you have updated your Windows operation system to the latest version and you've got all security updates. (As some necessary certificates may have come later with an update.)
  2. Does the behaviour change if you "investigate the certificate chain" through -> Properties -> Digital Signatures?
