Description

We currently only install the gnupg package, and we can't remove it. We have good reasons to additionally install the gnupg2 package (see parent ticket). What breaks if we just do it?

At least these ones should be tested:

  • Seahorse key management
  • Claws Mail's OpenPGP support
  • Tails OpenPGP Applet
  • Tails Upgrader
  • Seahorse Nautilus
  • WhisperBack
  • msva-perl

In an ISO built from experimental with feature/6241-gnupg2 merged in, I've successfully tested:

  • Seahorse
    • Export a key
    • Import a key from the desktop
  • OpenPGP Applet
    • symmetric encryption
  • Seahorse Nautilus
    • asymmetric encryption
  • WhisperBack
    • Send a bug report, waiting for confirmation that it arrived
  • Automated test suite: features/encryption.feature, features/torified_gnupg.feature

Regarding Tails Upgrader, it uses GnuPG in two ways:

  • some code uses gpg directly, and shouldn't be affected
  • some code uses GnuPG::Interface, which supports gpg2 too, and works just fine using gpg v1 if gpg2 is installed in parallel

=> it should be fine, I think. I've just successfully run its automated test suite on a system that has both gpg v1 and v2 installed.

Left to test:

  • Claws Mail's OpenPGP support
  • msva-perl

DrWhax, do you think you'll have time to test the Claws Mail part by the end of the month? If not, please reassign this ticket to me.

Claws Mail can encrypt and decrypt PGP/MIME messages. Left to test: msva-perl.
