Well, there has been the occasional discussion about the wishfulness of
copy-pasting strong passwords. But it still itches.
Being a non-C++ developer I'm not sure that my solution is the best, but
hey, it works:
Here is a patch against pinentry-0.8.1 to enable copy-pasting to
pinentry-qt4. Works everywhere pinentry-qt4 is used: kgpg, Enigmail,
etc. I'm happy ;-)
For your and my privacy I prefer encrypted private email.
For $10 a mosquito net + distribution + education + monitoring + evaluation.
