gpgsigs — annotate list of GnuPG keys with already done signatures
gpgsigs [options] keyid[,keyid[,...]] keytxt [outfile]
gpgsigs was written to assist the user in signing keys during a keysigning party. It takes as input a file containing keys in
"gpg --list-keys" format and prepends every line with a tag indicating if the user has already signed that uid. When the file contains
"ALGO Checksum:" lines and placeholders (
"__ __"), the checksum is inserted. ALGO can be set to the following algorithms: MD5 SHA1 SHA256 or RIPEMD160.
Call gpg --recv-keys before creating the output.
- -f charset
Convert keytxt from charset. The default is ISO-8859-1.
- -t charset
Convert UIDs to charset. The default is derived from LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE, and LANG, and if all these are unset, the default is ISO-8859-1.
Refresh the UID lists per key from gpg. Useful when UIDs were added or revoked since the input text was generated.
Generate LaTeX output, including photo IDs. Implies --refresh. Note: This writes jpg files to the current directory.
Use this keyid (8 or 16 bytes, or full fingerprint) for annotation. Multiple keyids can be separated by a comma (,).
Read input from keytxt.
Write output to outfile. Default is stdout.
The default home directory.
The gpg binary. Default:
The default working directory for gpg. Default:
The following key signing parties are using gpgsigs:
GnuPG is known to change its output format quite often. This version has been tested with gpg 1.4.18 and gpg 2.0.26. YMMV.
