Advanced key management - disable import.
ivan> yes, my question was about what action to take... hide it more? like, inside a global settings (that we don't have yet) mcnair> hmm, not sure. i wanted to flag this issue, but not sure the best solution. i think we do not want this as an easily available option for users, and i question why its there at all (besides deliverables). Partially i dont under stand the use case. but even still, this is to easy for someone to fuck shit up. chiiph: it's there because of advance users that might test our system, they first think "ok, how do I use this with my key pair" mcnair> so, leap allows you to import your own key pair, instead of creating a new one? chiiph: you'll create one alright, but you can replace it afterwards. mcnair > thats pretty cool. for a very small set of users. but probably a big set of early users. interesting...
elijah> it does pose a problem, since we plan to upload the key automatically to keyservers. i am not sure we should let people import a key, but export is good.
mcnair> regarding triaging this issue, can we put it into next cycle and make a decision on how to handle this. I would prefer not to launch an email beta with it. but we can discuss more. i can do that. i will make an issue and file it. chiiph: we could disable the import button for the time being, export and looking at your key ring are nice features imo. ivan> disable import or disable it if the user has mails, so it won't be poss... ok :P chiiph: disable import completely.
