Speak to keyservers directly?
We were discussion to maybe speak to keyservers directly, via HTTPS.
- We can get rid of a lot of shell-calls,
- it it much easier and probably much more realiable to test, sks-mock.rb and repeatingly killing dirmngr could probably be dropped,
- we still can support multiple, specific keyservers,
- we have much more control over the requests, e.g. can retry in case of timeouts.
- We can not support keyserver-pools (because they don't use proper HTTPS-certificates),
- we must use a hardcoded default, can't fall back to a system-wide configured keyserver,
- supporting connections via TOR requires additional work (but not that much: https://rubygems.org/gems/socksify, https://stackoverflow.com/questions/13353544/ruby-tor-and-nethttpproxy/13882749#13882749)
