While on the subject, I have something I don't quite understand.
I have recently upgraded to testing. I use mutt. On stable, a key
would automatically be retrieved, or at least attempted (I'm on
dialup).. Yesterday, I noted that this wasn't happening with testing -
not sure if this has been the case all along with testing. I still have
my stable system installed. I have nothing whatsoever mentioning
auto-key-retrieve on the stable system. I've diffed the corresponding
~/.muttrc's, /etc/Muttrc's and ~/.gnupg/options and cannot find anything
that would account for the different behaviors.
I wonder if there is a difference in the default behavior between the
stable/testing gnupg's or what? I'm puzzled.
