pgpcontrol 2.5

pgpcontrol is the collection of the original signing and verification scripts that David Lawrence wrote (in Perl) for verification of Usenet control messages. I took over maintenance of it, with a few other things, but haven't really done much with it. It would benefit a lot from an overhaul of both the documentation and the code, and turning it into a more normal Perl module and supporting scripts.

This release is none of those things. It's just pure housekeeping, picking up changes made by other people (mostly Julien √ČLIE) to the copies of the scripts in INN and making a few minor URL tweaks. But I figured I may as well, rather than distribute old versions of the scripts.

You can tell how little I've done with this stuff by noting that they don't even have a distribution page on my web site. The canonical distribution site is ftp.isc.org, although I'm not sure if that site will pick up the new release. (This relies on a chain of rsync commands that have been moved multiple times since the last time I pushed the release button, and I suspect that has broken.) I'll ping someone about possibly fixing that; in the meantime, you can find the files on archives.eyrie.org.
