It would be so nice if you can add a feature to store PGP Keys in the db.

Just optimal, for security reasons.

Edit: I mean of course the public keys.

For the public key only right? Because storing the private key on the server ...

I would recommend to let them the user open what he want to save on the server.

My example, I have my "own" Server and I would save my private key on the server.

I also would like to store the private/pub key on the server. Just the files.
Decryption of the key private with the passphrase and the OpenPGP part should still be done in the browser.

A warning about security concerns can be a good way to inform users about the risk they take by pushing their key on the server.

Even if most of GPG users are already aware of such concerns…

I agree, but the storing of the private keys on the server should be discouraged (but allowed).
News?
