GPG Services: verification results are wrong
GPG Services 1.11.6 1056 (ad0c960)
The verification results are wrong, if the signing key has been revoked.
I revoked my previous old key, because I created a newer one. Please note that the signatures of files that were created with a key, which is now revoked, are still valid. However, GPG Services gives me the following message:
Verification FAILED: Signature revoked (Code: 94)
This is wrong on so many levels. The verification is valid even though the key has been revoked.
The message should state something like this:
Signature valid - Key revoked - Reason for revocation: xxx
Telling people that a signature was not valid (what else is 'verification failed' supposed to mean?) is plain and simply wrong. It should clearly be stated that the signature is valid, but that the key was revoked.
