I've been contributing to Debian since 2001 and became and official developer in 2005. Most of this has been working on Vim and related packages. However, it has also given me an avenue to help contribute back to a various of other software projects through general Q&A that happens within Debian.

This is all done in my spare time. I would prefer to work full time on FOSS.

vim-gnupg 502 Updated 6 months ago

This script implements transparent editing of gpg encrypted files. The filename must have a ".gpg", ".pgp" or ".asc" suffix. When opening such a file the content is decrypted, when opening a new file the script will ask for the recipients of the encrypted file. The file content will be encrypted to all recipients before it is written. The script turns off viminfo, swapfile, and undofile to increase security.
