I started this thread to make a request for a change of the behaviour
of the 'clean' option:
> Please make an option to delete signatures, for which there is no
> corresponding signing key on the local keyring.
When there was some support for my idea, but no reaction from the
developers, I tried to implement it myself and sent the code to the
gnupg-devel mailing list.
After some emails about the name and the concept David Shaw decided
to go the KISS* way and implemented a change to 'clean' itself:
> Here's what I did - rather than add yet another option
> (which impacts all of keyserver use, import, exports, and
> --edit-key), I just changed clean sigs to remove sigs from
> unavailable keys. It just seems like the simplest solution
> all round.
So, fortunately in 1.4.3, there will be a 'clean', which does exactly
what 'clean total' should have done.
* KISS = Keep it simple, stupid!
