A bit overkill. After two years, I can assume we wont do it.

Thu 03 Jun 2004 11:19:50 AM UTC, original submission:

a script "gna-getkeys" should be written and included in package gnapgnap-extra (useful not specifically on gna machines). It's purpose will be to be able to do something like

# gna-getkeys --from-gna-user loic --to-local-user root

that would fetch the ssh key of the account loic at gna and give it to the local user root on the machine where it runs.

If we go via the database directly, we will have to give computer read access to the database directly, and we probably do not want to do that. So the best would maybe to have a webpage that gives only the key of a specific user.

In fact, it would be maybe something to directly include in savannah (so it would be sv_getkeys), I have to think about it.

However, it would probably be annoying if 7000 computers update keys everyhour by accessing our server -- this serveur would just be a keyserver ->> is there any ssh public keyserver existing, like for gpg?

I guess the best way to do it would be to allow only members of a specific project to fetch the public keys of a given user also member of this project, and only via ssh. But it would be less powerful.
