dkg added a comment to T3767: simplify sharing dirmngr's across multiple GNUPGHOMEs.

One of the things that dirmngr has going for it is that it tracks the current network state, and it would be nice to be able to reuse that state across sessions. If an ephemeral keyring can't use a shared dirmngr, there are fewer arguments for having dirmngr in the first place, and people might be more justified in replacing it with things like https://gitlab.com/anarcat/scripts/blob/master/openpgp-key-get

werner lowered the priority of T3767: simplify sharing dirmngr's across multiple GNUPGHOMEs from High to Normal.

I don't anymore think this is a high priority request. BTW, A more real problem than several dirmngr instances is multi-user access to smartcards.

Is a PR to add it to the website welcome? Not sure that I'll get around to it, but in case someone else is interested - I linked here from those stackoverflow pages.

werner added a comment to T1563: Place content of doc/DETAILS at www.gnupg.org.

It is in the tarball:

doc/DETAILS

and for example Debian installs it as /usr/share/doc/gnupg/DETAILS.gz. Check out the first section "Format of the colon listings". Or use GPGME which provides C, C++, Python and JSON bindings. Sorry, it never made it to the website.

aheinecke claimed T3902: Use the term password instead of passphrase.

First of all I find PIN a very bad term. "Personal Identification Number" for example for my Gnuk token is confusing. I use a string there,... So let us use PIN only where it really has to be a number. Otherwise it is a Password.

werner added a comment to T3902: Use the term password instead of passphrase.

Despite that I created this task, I am still not not convinced that removing the term passphrase is a good idea. If we do this in gnupg we would need to change all strings to make it clear that the passphrase is used to protect one's own key and has nothing to do with encryption etc. In fact the term PIN would be better because it is common knowledge that you use a PIN to get access to something you own. There would be less confusion on the purpose of the passphrase. Sure PIN is usually considered to be a number. However my bank allows a string to be used as, what they call, PIN.

aheinecke added a comment to T3902: Use the term password instead of passphrase.

There has been some progress here. At least we no longer use "passphrase" in new code. We still have not yet replaced all old occurances.

gniibe claimed T4243: Test failure in libgcrypt-1.8.4.

T4298: 'make check' with uninstalled library, which is building now (even if rpath doesn't work well) handles related issue, which was fixed for libgcrypt-1.9. Since this issue is for other libraries (libgpg-error, specifically), we could do something similar, but, it may be detecting LD_LIBRARY_PATH to fail with "Please remove LD_LIBRARY_PATH".

kalle added a comment to T4282: info gnupg.

yes. that's why i wrote it in '['-brackets.
but usually, in info-documents a synopsis is written about it.
I think that it's not self-evident, that "you can either give a file or let the tool read from stdin or output to stdout" and therefore should be written explicitly.
