mutt doesn't handle revoked uids of gnupg keys correctly
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:35:32 EDT
Description of problem:
When you try to send an GnuPG-encrypted message to a key with multiple uids,
where (at least) one uid has been revoked but (at least) one uid is still valid,
mutt incorrectly displays the whole key as revoked and refuses to encrypt and
send the message.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Find a public key on your key ring with at least one revoked uid and one
valid uid. (Alternatively, create a new key with two uids and revoke one of them).
2. Compose a message to the owner of the key, Choose P)gp - B)oth (sign+encrypt)
3. Try to send the mail
In the key selection menu, both uids of the key are marked with an "R"
(revoked). If you choose the key anyway, mutt complains that the key has been
revoked and refuses to encrypt and send the message.
Only the revoked uid should be marked as revoked. Sending mail encrypted with
that public key should still be possible.
Upgrade to mutt 1.4.1. The source RPM mutt-1.4.1-0.8.x.src.rpm is missing one
BuildPrereq (cyrus-sasl-devel), but otherwise compiles fine on Redhat 7.3 and
seems to work fine (not yet much tested, though).
We are probably not at this point going to do a version upgrade of mutt for 7.3.
