arkadesOrg added a comment to T5789: gpg --list-options [comp] has missing closing quotes for strings.

Excuse me you are right of course. man gpgconf | grep quot says it all.

arkadesOrg added a comment to T5789: gpg --list-options [comp] has missing closing quotes for strings.

man gpg | grep quote nor man gpgconf | grep quote does not tell anything about it. I recognized the single opening quote of "string at post processing the output of gpgconf --list-options to generate a gpgconf.conf template. I just expected a closing quote for "string".

vitusb: We had this discussion on cryptography@ years ago. No need to start it again - or well, try it over there. This is a bug tracker and not a discussion forum.

These curves are not the default in the compliance mode "gnupg" only if you explicitly switch to the BSI defined "VS-NfD" mode they become default.

Nope. The double quote indicates a string. See the man page.

Please no holy wars on the type of curves. NIST as its opinon, Europe has its opinion, DJB has of course a different opinion. Please use the the cryptography ML for such political/technical discussions.

werner closed T5783: All s2k hardenings silently ignored when exporting private keys as Resolved.

Sending a private key with just the local protection is not a good idea. It is better to export the key and then send it in an encrypted mail - for example in symmetric mode with a strong password.

werner closed T5705: GnuPG: System wide configuration ignored when gpg.conf-2 exists as Resolved.

Not a bug but a limitation of 2.2's option listing: In contrast to 2.3 we can't *show* the used options via gpgconf correcly if there is a conflict between global and local options. However, the actually *used* values are different and correct according to the config. In particular a global forced option overrides any local or command line option.

Just adding this note because a next step I'm also evaluating in my current T5593 configuration status it to temporarily create a new Gpg4win 3.1.16 hybrid configuration by also adding latest GnuPG v2.2.31 to see if all issues I reported here are still present (which is also quite probable).
Also because of T5593 it would just be quite interesting to see if GnuPG v2.2.31 too might experience same T5593 path related error.

swimmerm added a comment to T5626: 'GPGCONF --list-dirs' command option on-screen displayed results show '%3a' unexpected and unneeded characters in each line displaying a C: drive path instead of simpler expected '...:C:\...' sub-strings with only valid ':' ('colon') characters present.

Just tracking my own additional investigation still about past Werner statement "percent escaping is correct and required" when this bug was closed for 1st time.
Also found interesting past references into rG055f8854d3f4 and rGe064c75b08a5 but only this last seems indeed much more specifically directly involved since it really contains related part of code (common/stringhelp.c) directly involved with this bug report for 'percent escaping' ':' (colon) character with '%3a' string even if sometimes, when possibly un-needlingly done, may even provide users unexpected on-screen displayed results like those I documented in this bug.
Problem now is that to really fully understand why on-screen displayed strings by 'gpgconf --list-dirs' correctly show a ':' (colon) correctly expected character near an unexpected (by end users) '%3a' (percent escaped) string that should just have corresponded with another simple (& user correctly expected) ':' colon character I can only really see to 2 options:
A) reopening this bug once again :-S ;
B) simply opening a new separate one asking for some additional explanations and maybe even to consider some future slight code changes to (at least for Windows OSes) ensure 'gpgconf --list-dirs' directory displayed paths results are more UI consistent with 'gpgconf --list-dirs homedir' or 'gpgconf --list-dirs sysconfdir' displayed ones where displayed C:\... paths always correctly display ':' (colon) instead of '%3a'.
So far this last seems me best viable option also because in same rGe064c75b08a5 I also saw another piece of code (tools/gpgconf-comp.c) with some similar code lines, that apparently (it seems me) if directly referenced (at least only for Windows OSes only, so maybe when a system variable %OS%==Windows_NT exists) instead of current one (common/stringhelp.c) also providing '%3a' 'percent escaping' results, might then have probably also easily avoided '%3a' user unexpected on-screen displayed results only depending by 'percent escaping'.

Just adding this note for any future reference needs only (or even message localization reference, since involved text characters strings are also expected to be among Italian language localized messages even if involved strings are not specifically being localized).
