bernhard added a comment to T5639: dirmngr uses the wrong Let's encrypt chain.

My experience on a Window 10 system was, that removing the expired root certificate did not help with https://keyserver.ubuntu.com and the intermediate certificate was not in the windows store, so it could not be removed.

One problem I see is that keyserver.ubuntu.com delivers a problematic intermediate(?) certificate:

If there is no easy way to install a new version of GnuPG, e.g. for Gpg4win or for GNU/Linux distributions: It may make sense to have instructions for the workaround ready.

Hi @Lambd0x, with Thunderbird having migrated to a different main OpenPGP implementation and Enigmail not supporting old thunderbirds version anymore (in two days https://www.enigmail.net/index.php/en/home/news/71-2021-08-31-end-of-support-for-thunderbird) and new GnuPG versions over the last three years. Do you still have problems?

bernhard added a comment to T3893: Timeout for receive-keys.

In my understanding, it should be possible to wait for the gpg command pipe from a different process and then terminate the connection on a timeout, kllling the process eventually. So the Enigmail side could implement something. These days I'm not sure what Enigmail uses for OpenPGP support. Thunderbird has moved on to a different implementation and Enigmail stops supporting Thunderbird 68 in two days https://www.enigmail.net/index.php/en/home/news/71-2021-08-31-end-of-support-for-thunderbird

Can you point me to a more elaborate list of the general concerns? (Central directories offer some sort of stable history, namespace and API service towards identifying modules, just like the venerable https://www.ctan.org/ . The solutions built on such services, like programming environment specific "package" and dependency managers that download and install thousands of packages automatically (like yarn) may be debatable, but I am not aware of much general concern against the services itself.)
