Subject: [gentoo-user] What do you think about pam-gnupg?

1 Hi all,
3 I let mutt-wizard set a cron job which takes my password out of pass,
4 logs into the email server and fetches my mail every 5 minutes. With
5 this I have to unlock my key as frequently as the amount in
6 gpg-agent.conf's default-cache-ttl setting. pam-gnupg has been suggested
7 as a remedy to this problem but the disclaimer on its page about
8 dangerous bugs make me hesitant to use it. What do you think about the
9 security of it? It's only 500 SLOC but I don't trust myself with
10 reviewing the security of it.
