`gnutls_openpgp_key_get_pk_algorithm ()' currently returns an `int'
while it should really return `gnutls_pk_algorithm_t'. Same for
Also, `key_get_name ()' assumes that SIZEOF_BUF points to the size of
BUF when it is invoked and uses that information to avoid buffer
overflows; however, it does not modify *SIZEOF_BUF as one would expect
to indicate the actual length of the name returned on success.
Conversely, `key_get_fingerprint ()' does not take into account the
initial value of *FPRLEN (thus, it may write data past the end of FPR)
but it does modify it on return to indicate the actual length of the
I think it would be best to both take into account the original value of
these arguments _and_ modify them upon return to indicate the actual
length of the element returned in both cases.
