pgpsubmit is a simple WSGI application that can be used for collecting
OpenPGP public keys on a keyring e.g. for a keysigning party.
- submission deadline and “time remaining” display
- keyring and key list export (with MD5 and SHA-1 hashes)
- configured entirely through environment
Three WSGI environ variables must be set:
- Name or full path of the GnuPG executable. If the value does not
begin with "/", an executable will be looked for on PATH
by the normal mechanism. If using Apache httpd and encountering
OSError, try specifying the full path to the GnuPG executable.
- The GnuPG home directory. Must be writable by the user running the
application. Multiple pgpsubmit instances could be run in parallel,
each with a different GNUPGHOME.
- URL at which may be found the corresponding source of pgpsubmit,
pursuant to section 15 of the AGPL. If you run a modified version of
pgpsubmit, the source code for that modified version must be available
at this URL.
There are some other configuration variables for controlling
- Specify a deadline for submission. After this time, submission will
be disabled, and a message to effect of same will appear. While the
deadline looms, time remaining will be displayed. The format is
- If a deadline is set, links to download the keyring and key list are
not shown until the submission deadline is reached. Settings this
environment variable (to any value) causes these links to be shown
regardless of whether or not the deadline has passed.
A configuration for Apache with mod_wsgi might be:
