wotmate: simple grapher for your keyring

Hi, all:

I've been maintaining the kernel.org web of trust for the past 5+ years,
and I wrote a number of tools to help me visualize trust paths between
fully trusted keys and those belonging to newer developers.

I finally got a chance to clean up the code, and I hope it's useful to


If you think this is very similar to the PGP Pathfinder tool on
https://pgp.cs.uu.nl, then you are right, but there is an important
distinction. Wotmate does not require that a key is in the "strong set"
before you can track paths to it, and you also don't have to wait for
days before new signatures are reflected in the wotsap file.

Example usage (assuming you have Linus Torvalds' key in your keyring):

./graph-paths.py torvalds
