pert added a comment to T5135: Provide more practical thread-safe strerror, perhaps with strerror_l.

Actually, I think there's a way to make gpg_strerror_r more usable on its own. I previously said

I find it quite difficult to use strerror_r and gpg_strerror_r. With having to guess and retry to get an appropriate buffer length, a wrapper which dynamically allocates the string seems to be needed.

pert added a comment to T4618: DANE OpenPGP certificate retrieval does not verify DNSSEC signatures.

Granted I'm not familiar with the functions and it may not be applicable, but the DNS resolver functions in the GNU C Library have semi-recently gained parameters (RES_USE_DNSSEC) to check for DNSSEC validation IIRC. Recent versions of glibc also don't trust the 'ad' bit unless an indication of its trustworthiness is set in /etc/resolv.conf, say if using a local validating resolver, so one can be sure that it's trustworthy. It also appears musl libc may support this.

pert added a comment to T4702: Deadline for the GnuPG 2.3.0 release.

In a discussion we decided that we need a deadline for GnuPG 2.3.0 so that we finally release it.

pert added a comment to T3189: secmem routines should be in libgpg-error as gpgrt_*.

Do we need to expose the secmem routines, as a public interface of gpgrt?

I would find it useful. For example I'm making a utility that gets a passphrase with GPGME and gpg-agent, and would like to copy it into a buffer that lives on after closing the context.
