GPGPreferences "Fix GPGTools" creates fully-commented skeleton gpg.conf, but changing keyserver removes commented sections

Reported by C Fraire | February 16th, 2012 @ 01:54 PM | in 1.0.1 (closed)

When I had first run GPGPreferences > About > Fix GPGTools, it created a new, fully-commented gpg.conf, but then changing keyserver reduced it to a five line, uncommented configuration.

May I request that GPGPreferences preserve the commented parts when the settings are changed? Perhaps by recognizing the commented out switches (e.g., "#force-v3-sigs", "#show-photos", etc.) and including their preceding comments as associated annotations? And also including the remaining commented out sections as unassociated annotations?

    We've included a library which can read gpg.conf files and writes them.
    The reason the comments are not included is due to the fact, that the library only
    includes the variables which are not commented out and when anything is changed, only
    those variables are written back to the file.

    We'll have to look into the possibility of restoring the comments as well.

    Unfortunately we're a very small team, so please be patient with us :)

    P.S.: Seeing you're quite familiar with the whole subject, would you like to participate with us? Do you know how to code?

    I'm a C++ developer, and I have wanted to learn Xcode/Objective-C. I'll study this .conf part of your project and see if I can get up to speed and try to contribute something.

    I think we'll tackle that problem on our hacking marathon we'll be doing this weekend, it shouldn't be hard to solve. :)
    But let us know if you're interested in any of the GPGTools projects.
