Re: [Duplicity-talk] symmetric key, or public gpg key?

I assume the encryption stuff is handled with gpgme or something; it's not actually your own encryption code?

Also, do you know if a symmetric key would perform faster than using a public key?

The current bzr version has the fix for this and it will be in 0.6.06.
When adding the cache-sync part of the code I made it always ask for a
password (not good).  Now it does not unless it needs to sync the cache.

I will try to get 0.6.06 out later this week.
