Good morning Peter,

Recovering from HDD crash from what are ostensibly symmetrically-encrypted backups of the key.

It is entirely possible, that I have a massive ignorance of how gpg-agent works, though, as it seems that switching to a temporary user (one created, for the purpose of testing the recovery, as it would start with a "fresh" non-existent .gnupg directory) is not working properly and it is using the gpg-agent from the original user.  I have tried starting a session with the temporary user, but git is failing to get gpg to sign commits even so (I am uncertain if it is getting horribly confused, or more likely I am getting horribly confused).  Possibly I need to do more research, but that takes time and I would very much prefer to hack on C-lightning under my current reasonably-comfortable setup.

We should probably consider getting this off lightning-dev mailinglist.  Possibly we want to get off c-lightning mailinglist, too.

Personally I would only want to put in the continued effort to come up with a comfortable GPG setup only if Rusty and/or Christian insist on GPG-signed commits.
