Part of lp.testing.keyserver

GPG Key Information Server Prototype.

It implements the operations:

It only depends on GPG for key submission; for retrieval and searching it just looks for files in the root (eg. /var/tmp/testkeyserver). The files are named like this:

0x<keyid|fingerprint>.<operation>

Example:

$ gpg --list-key cprov > 0x681B6469.index

note: remove the lines containing 'sub' or 'secret' keys

$ gpg --export -a cprov > 0x681B6469.get
