werner edited projects for T4512: gpg's --keyserver option should be more robustly deprecated, added: gnupg (gpg23); removed gnupg (gpg22), dirmngr.

Given the recent problems with the keyservers, I expect that the keyserver feature will go away anyway and thus I do not think we will put any more effort into this. Thus I re-tag this as gpg 2.3.

dkg added a comment to T4512: gpg's --keyserver option should be more robustly deprecated.

If we only need it for backward compatibility, then the configuration in gpg.conf should *not* be overriding the preferred, forward-looking form of the configuration (in dirmngr.conf). If it is low priority to fix this, then there will be a generation of GnuPG users and toolchains which deliberately configure the value in gpg.conf instead of dirmngr.conf because they'll know that's the more robust way to do it.

werner triaged T4512: gpg's --keyserver option should be more robustly deprecated as Low priority.

We need --keyserver in gpg for just one reason: backward compatibility.

dkg reopened T4512: gpg's --keyserver option should be more robustly deprecated as "Open".

thanks for fixing that error message, @werner. As @Valodim points out in discusson about hagrid, a gpg.conf keyserver option (deprecated according to the documentation) overrides the dirmngr.conf keyserver option (not deprecated according to the documentation.

I see the regression of gpgconf. I wonder if it's better to fix gpgconf side, too.

werner reopened T3383: scdaemon option 'card-timeout' does not have any effect as "Open".

I see a regression with your fix. This option is even controllable with gpgconf at the basic level. It would be better to make it a dummy option.

gniibe added projects to T3383: scdaemon option 'card-timeout' does not have any effect: scd, Documentation.

I meant, 'card-timeout' was not intended for controlling caching PIN on card. It was for "DISCONNECT" command support.
I'm going to remove questionable documentation.
Closing.

werner closed T4273: agent: Request insertion of smartcard when no card present as Resolved.

The behaviour related to ssh key access is due to the way ssh works: After a connection has been established to a server ssh presents to to the server all identities (public keys) it has access to (meaning it has a corresponding private key). Thus we can't tell ssh all the keys we have because that would be an information leak and may also take too long. Because the user may in some cases not want to use the ssh-agent but resort to ssh command line input of the passphrase, we do not insist on using a key known by gpg-agent.

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.
