Just a quick RFC on how this will integrate into the CVS command line &

Sounds reasonable. If and when signed commits become standard practise, would we make signing the default, and require a '-g-' to turn it off, or will this be the default in perpetuity?

Since adding -g to a .cvsrc might not be acceptable for users that work
with multiple roots, I think this should also be implemented as a method
option that can be added to a CVSROOT string
<http://ximbiot.com/cvs/wiki/index.php?title=CVS--Concurrent_Versions_System_v1.12.12.1:_The_Repository#The_connection_method>.

What would the option be? In keeping with Mark's later comments, we probably don't want 'gpg' in it, so 'gpg-sign' would probably not be the best option. I'm thinking 'sign-id=user-id'. On my home system, for example, my CVS user ID is 'jim', so I'd have to specify which PGP key to use.

Example:
CVSROOT=:local;address@hidden:/cvs
