I'm implementing Web Key Directory support in OpenKeychain and have
some questions about the current version of the draft: 06 .
1. The draft does not specify if redirects should be followed,
for example, for this URL:
If the HTTP response is a redirect code (301, etc.) should it be
followed? As far as I can see both gnupg and servers in the wild
(e.g. kernel.org) utilize redirects. Are there any restrictions
to these redirects (e.g. only to https schemes? or is http also
2. The I-D mentions in several places Content-Type:
application/octet-string, I think this is a typo, it should be
Sub-question: is there no better media type? I've browsed the IANA
registry, sadly application/pgp-keys is only for armored keys (RFC 3156 ).
Thank you for your time!
