1.1       wiki        3: - gpg for now
                      4: - master packages-signing signing key, which signs keys that are good for one arch/os-version/quarterly
                      5: - agc wants the signing to be done under human control; change the rsync task to send mail to the pbulk admin. Wait until the bulk signing is done and use a lock file to indicate it's time to sync? Or just start the rsync manually in a script that also does the signing?

        !             7: ### how does signing work? do we have tools to sign an entire harvest of packages in one go?
        !             8: signing is done using pkg_admin from the pkgtools/pkg_install package; pkg_admin gpg-sign-package <src> <dest>

        !            16: The tools want to sign each package as it is built. Joyent uses gpg-agent for that, so no bulk-signing toos yet, however signing packages later is not hard, so to batch sign,

        !            23: This still wants the passphrase for every single package, so flank with gpg-agent. Does gpg-agent have an issue with chroots? It wouldn't work in the build chroot but may simply have issues due to both gnupg and gnupg2 being installed.
        !            24: 
        !            25: pkg_install from pkgsrc currently has some issues when encountering a signed package with pkg_add: you can't install it unless you have the means to verify it first, even if you expressly do not want to verify it. Base pkg_add complains but installs.
