Frankly, I do not understand for what this tool is used.  It states:

  gpgkey2ssh.c - Converter  (Debug helper)

but I can't remember that I ever used it.  It has also a lot of problems
for example the missing support for modern key algorithms.

What are the use cases for it?  Extracting public keys from an OpenPGP
key to put it into authorized keys?



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
