[OT] New keyserver

Some key server project :
http://www.cryptnet.net/fsp/cks/ (CKS implementation)
http://pgp.mit.edu/ (the initial pks implementation)
http://www.sf.net/project/pks/ (the patchy pks version) (new project
to refresh pks code)
I'm currently using the pks patchy version. But this version is still
using the db2 specific version. (not LFS compliant and so on)
Maybe some work around that to change the backend to a SQL backend ?
and additional sync method (SMTP method is a real pain for my MTA
). (incremental sync via HKP or others ?)
Using GnuPG as core, maybe... the code is cleaner than pks ;-)
With this, the keyserver can also make more work on the OpenPGP
message (like signing keys,...)
I have asked (in users-list) about a remote method to invoke GnuPG
so this could be part of the GnuPG server project. (It seems that
Werner is thinking about that)
So a GnuPG (key?) server is a great idea.
just my .2 EUR.
PS : Forget the Multicast... Maybe look around at the dns
implementation in the crypnet project.
