When dpkg-buildpackage calls gpg it needs to insert a blank line, but when it calls pgp, it does not. If it is called with pgp=pgpgpg the blank line *is* needed because it's really talking to gpg. > I see two solutions here: > > 1.- reassign the bug to pgpgpg and revert my patch > This I have done. dpkg_1.10.20 reverts your patch and is uploaded today. This mail reassigns the bug to pgpgpg. pgpgpg is supposed to be a wrapper, therefore it should emulate the behaviour of pgp precisely, this includes blank lines and such-forth. > 2.- have dpkg-buildpackage handle a _third_ method which is similar to > gnupg's but when pgpgpg is installed (i.e. /etc/alternatives/pgp exists). > gah! No. If someone's using pgpgpg then they have a gpg setup, so they can just use the gpg method. > Sorry for the mistake in producing the patch.
