in particular, the lack of a cleanup process breaks the test suite. If the test suite had a cleanup process, we know exactly how to "un-break" things. > I am trying to persaude Daniel that we should provide (at least > optionally) a mode where an autostarted agent (and the corresponding > authorisations, if the user types in a passphrase) have a lifetime > limited by that of the gpg process which started the agent. fwiw, i'm not the person who needs persuading. Ian's proposal is rather complex, seems likely to introduce new problems, and it isn't a change i'm up for either writing myself or supporting as a divergence from GnuPG upstream. The simple fix (cleaning up the test suite by eithe deleting the temporary GNUPGHOME directory or by invoking "gpgconf --kill gpg-agent") is a lot more straightforward. Alternately, if schroot was to run under a session management supervisor like systemd, then the session manager could take care of both launching and terminating the agent as needed. --dkg
