ikloecker added a comment to T7182: Draft: Kleopatra: Improve Certificate Tooltips in Certificate view.

In general, I question the usefulness of the tool tip for the certificate list. The information in the table is already very detailed and for more details there's the details view. Important information that's missing in the table shouldn't be hidden in the tool tip.

werner added a comment to T7124: unclear descriptions of `--disable-cipher-algo` and `--disable-pubkey-algo` .

Back in the ancient days we allowed to dlopen algorithms so to avoid patent problems in certain countries.

werner closed T6999: Are you aware of implementations which would generate signatures with 0x0001 lbits in signature? as Resolved.

No, I am not aware. I can't remember whether PGP once had such a bug because @dshaw did most cross-testing and fixing for PGP bugs. I would suggest to remove any such checks. IIRC, this was introduced by PGP 2 to speed up signature checking. 30 years ago RSA operations were quite expensive.

werner closed T6981: Not VS-NfD compliant as Resolved.

VS-NfD is not a standard but a classification for restricted data. Software used to convey such material needs an official approval and is bound to certain organizational requirements. That is what "VS-NfD konform" says. The community version of gpg4win does not have this approval despite that it is technically the same code as the approved GnuPG VS-Desktop.

In 2.4, a user need to specify disable-ccid in scdaemon.conf when scdaemon is built with integrated CCID driver (using libusb) but the user wants to use PC/SC driver instead.

gniibe changed the status of T6810: gpgv: missing entry in "FILES" section in gpgv.texi from Open to Testing.
Nov 16 2023, 5:32 AM · gnupg, Documentation
gniibe claimed T6810: gpgv: missing entry in "FILES" section in gpgv.texi.

To align the documentation of GnuPG, we should not use GNUPGHOME in FILES section.
It may be controlled by --homedir as well as GNUPGHOME.
GNUPGHOME is addressed in the ENVIRONMENT section, so, I don't think it makes sense using $GNUPGHOME}/trustedkeys.kbx.

werner removed a project from T6765: signature-key.pdf has incorrect signature: Bug Report.

Your tools don't use the chain validation model which is required for QES (at least according to German laws). A signature is still valid even if the certificate has been revoked. You need to consider the context and the time the certificate was revoked.

Thanks. I think that it was the oldest one: FSF used to be there in Cambridge, then moved to Tremont St. in Boston, and now it's in Franklin St.

Funny enough that Python seems not to allow to set the permission with open. Low priority because a proper umask must anyway be used on a multi-user system.

Thanks for your follwup. Let me remark that it is sufficient to stop all gnupg processes (pkill gpg-agent) and then rename the ~/.gnupg to .gnupg-save-NNNN. This way you have a backup and gpg will create a new ~/.gnupg.
