Description Graeme Nichols 2007-09-29 23:10:40 EDT
Description of problem:
Kmail fails to recognise an email signed by an X509 certificate resulting in the
failure to import the cert/key to enable encryption of an email to the sender of
the signed email. This works just fine in Thunderbird.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
KSEPIM-3.5.7-3.fc7; gnupg2-2.0.6-2.fc7; gpgme-1.1.4-1.fc7

How reproducible:
Simply receive an email signed by the sender's X509 certificate. Kmail will
respond with the error "Not enough information to check Signature" and "Status:
No status information available." Clicking on the "Details' link will show the
correct details for the sender's signature.


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Receive an email signed with the sender's X509 certificate
2. See above
3.
  
Actual results:
Signature not recognised


Expected results:
Signature recognised and the cert/key automatically imported into
keyring/certificate cache. Thunderbird behaves as expected.

Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2007-10-03 12:13:11 EDT
From following upstream ml, looks like for this functionality to work properly,
on e needs to have 'dirmngr' pkg installed.

It would seem gnupg2 would be the right place to add a dependency, as it is
gpgsm that does the interaction with dirmngr.

gnupg2 rawhide changelog:
* Wed Oct 03 2007 Rex Dieter <rdieter[AT]fedoraproject.org> 2.0.7-2
- Requires: dirmngr (#312831)

This will seep back as an F-7 update soon.
