Subject: Please add can_sign() function
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 402b
The presence of gpg or Crypt::OpenPGP is not enough to ensure that signing is possible. In particular, the lack of a secret key will cause sign() to fail. For the sake of module installers and CPAN authors, please add a can_sign() function to allow the toolchain to confirm that signing is possible instead of blindly trying it and dying with unfriendly error messages for the user. Thank you, David
