Rejecting.  This is already done automatically if needed.  No need to 
store local copy of key if it exists on a keyserver.

Is the idea to add a button in Turba to fetch a PGP key from the
keyservers when editting a contact or something else?
That would be the obvious place but might be troublesome to implement 
with the abstract and dynamic nature of Turba.

For your first request, a patch would be great.



Your second request is bogus.  There is absolutely nothing (e.g. RFCs) 
that says that a PGP program MUST use a keyserver to download/get 
keys.  Therefore, if we are going to store any keys locally, it must 
be the full key text.

Please add a way to import GPG keys by giving their fingerprint or ID 
only (it works already when verifying signatures). Currently, the key 
has to be extracted manually and entered completely.



It would be nice also, when not the GPG key itself but only the 
identifying fingerprint would be stored in the database.
