Don't use too many parallel sessions.  gpg's --multifile option may help
you to serialize things but that require synchronization on your site.

I can imagine to implement a limit on parallel connections to gpg-agent
and then either return an error code (so that gpg can retry after some
time) or queue the requests up in gpg-agent.

We can't do that for 2.2 anymore, though.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
