Hi All,

yeaterday I installed Ben's packages for gnupg v2 and pinentry on macos
X. They absolutely work as expected, tnx Ben! But, as others (and I)
have noted, gpg-agent does not cache pinentries for ssh authentication,
which basically means that you'll have to enter your pin every time you
connect to a remote host. Not to long ago Werner responded that he would
think about a change in gpg-agent to facilitate this. Now I was
wondering what Werner has thought up?

Met vriendelijke groeten,

Remco Post

end." -- Douglas Adams
