Make sure that there is enough trust for this user. The definition of
--yes is "assume yes on _most_ questions".
I can see that that is not an alternative for you, but simple pass a
--yes or (hypothetical) --strong-yes is not good. What you should do
- if you get such an error message (I should add a status error
message (to avoid NLS probs) for this (see --status-fd))
- use a list option ( --list-key --with-colons ):
!--- you should find some trust information here ;-)
to show the user that it is not secure to use this key
- the status information (which I should add) can you give
a hint about the problem
- use a new option to override this check.
There is no such option yet and I'm thinking whether to add some kind
of "--force-xxx" or a way to say that key xy is always trusted (this
may be better because I can record this in the TrustDB).
Please don't use such a --force option per default. I'll add some
