#188 new

Use keyserver specific cache instead of general

Reported by Support | October 20th, 2022 @ 05:31 PM

Assigned to Stable #121371. Currently the answer for queries if a public key exists or not on a keyserver are cached in a plist. The results however are not mapped to a specific keyserver and instead all go into one list.
This generally works, since SKS based keyserver are synchronizing between each other, so the assumption that if a key is found on one it will be on the others is not incorrect.
If however the user switches between different keyservers and they report different states (in case of a bug for example), the cached result could be valid for one keyserver but not the other, leading to inconsistent behavior in for example GPG Keychain.
