There are a couple of reasons for this.  I took this opportunity to
write a litte test program which prints almost all information we get
back from a signature verification.  Maybe the output will be helpful.

  $ ./run-verify foo.sig foo
  Original file name: [none]
  Signature 0
    status ....: Success
    summary ...: valid green
    fingerprint: 7B96D396E6471601754BE4DB53B620D01CE0C630
    created ...: 1255634851
    expires ...: 0
    validity ..: full
    val.reason : Success
    pubkey algo: 1
    digest algo: 2
    pka address: [none]
    pka trust .: n/a
    other flags:
    notations .: no



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Auschnahme regelt ein Bundeschgesetz.
