Yeah, it doesn't look like you can set a certain time
limit for caching passphrase in gpgshell. However, it
appears to me that gpg itself has gpg passphrase
agent, which can be set up to store passphrase for n
seconds (correct me if i am wrong, please).
However, using either of them makes your private key
The only place i found that describes how to configure
it is this: www.debian-administration.org/articles/378
although i don't know if it applies to windows.
