tla-gpg-check: GNU Arch revision signature checker


tla-gpg-check - GNU Arch revision signature checker


tla-gpg-check gpg_command="gpg_command"


Checks whether a revision is correctly signed. This is indended to be used in tla's signing hooks. It calls gpg_command on the standard input and makes sure only one signed message is given.

Here is how to setup a simple automatic tla signature check:

mkdir -p -m 700 ~/.arch-params/signing/
echo 'tla-gpg-check gpg_command="gpg --verify-files -"' \
  > ~/.arch-params/signing/=default.check
echo 'gpg --clearsign --use-agent' > ~/.arch-params/signing/=default
