But this issue has been fixed for so long that any CD's documenting the
fix will have since bit-rotted! It's ancient Information Technology

To be exact, this has been a non-issue since GnuPG 1.4.8, released
2007-12-20, which defaulted to --require-cross-certification after the
cross certifications had percolated through the ecosystem in the years
leading up to that new default.


I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
