signet aims to ease the process of signing GPG keys, or rather their individual UIDs. It behaves in a similar manner to eg. caff, but has less requirements and fewer configuration options. Basically, signet is a shell wrapper around numerous calls to gpg itself. WARNING ------- Due to breakages introduced with the GnuPG 2.1, signet v0.2 breaks compatability to older versions of GnuPG. These older versions should still work with signet v0.1 GOAL ---- Have an easy way to sign keys on online as well as airgapped/offline machines, by allowing import and export by multiple methods (eg. files, key servers) BASIC OPERATION --------------- signet first queries the PRIVATE_SIGNER_KEYRING (defaults to ~/.gnupg/secring.gpg) for secret keys suitable for signing and lets the user choose the key she wants to sign with. In the next step, the keys to be signed are imported into a temporary keyring via multiple possible imports (keyserver, exported files, complete keyrings). Thereafter, UIDs are individually brought before the user to sign or reject to do so, and then exported signature for signature into their own files suitable for emailing to the respective UIDs. Using gpg-agent to provide the passphrase only once should work pretty well. I'll happily receive Problems, bugs, ideas and praise via email to email@example.com :) Many thanks to neun and sycoso for beta-testing and pointing out flaws!
