(I'm talking about 1.4.1 here. I think I'll have some time next week to
have a look at 1.5.0.)
Well, the function gnutls_openpgp_key_export looks like this:
/* call cdk_kbnode_write_to_mem() and handle return value */
if (format == GNUTLS_OPENPGP_FMT_BASE64)
/* code */
I inserted "printf("gnutls_openpgp_key_export format ==
GNUTLS_OPENPGP_FMT_BASE64\n");" at the beginning of the if block and
"printf("gnutls_openpgp_key_export format != GNUTLS_OPENPGP_FMT_BASE64
\n");" just befor the return and I can see that the if isn't processed.
OK, this might be correct and there's nothing to do when the format
isn't GNUTLS_OPENPGP_FMT_BASE64. You should know better than me :-)
But then there's another problem in libextra/gnutls_openpgp.c. Please
have a look at _gnutls_openpgp_key_to_gcert:
ret = gnutls_openpgp_key_export (cert, GNUTLS_OPENPGP_FMT_RAW, NULL,
if (ret != GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER)
The function always dies, except when there's a specific error.
