[Gpg4win-users-en] dirmngr, for paranoids.

Hello, %LOCALAPPDATA% is a per user folder, since it's supposed to save time by caching revocations for all users, why not storing the revocation in "%programdata%\GNU\cache\dirmngr" instead? It's readable by all users and not only current user! Current method means all user will have a copy of the revocation cache!

In its cache directory.  On Windows these are files in the "%LOCAL_APPDATA%\GNU\cache\dirmngr" directory.  Note that this is all public data.  Basically the CRL in an easier to search format.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
