You can have git send GPG signed emails by configuring git as follows:

    email = XXX
    name = YYY
    signingkey = ZZZ

Probably unrelated to your question: Is there a reason for using `acurl`? If I remember correctly it has been superseded by `hut`:

To be honest I think that that page could use a little help in
clarifying what Sourcehut offers, what is free and what will become
paid. A complete overview of Sourcehut services could probably help, I
was not able t ofind such a summary. Example:

| Service      | Description                                  | Price       |

Similar request when submitting bug reports:<>

Judging by the lack of feedback in that thread, my hunch is that
Sourcehut maintainers want to keep things text-only, so we need to find
our way around this limitation - which I agree it may hinder the
preservation of the full history of a project.

If you want to stay inside Sourcehut in the hope that your attachments
will last longer than another 3rd-party service, you can create an
unlisted git repository, push binaries there, then link the commit: the
image won't be visible, but at least you have a link to download it. If
you have a paying subscripion to Sourcehut - you can use to

I'm not 100% sure of how it works, but Wikipedia says the verification

Which I don't seem to find in your config. Could this be the reason?

I used to this other tool to verify my DKIM:

Current status and future of Sourcehut 4 months ago

I would like to open a discussion thread about the current status and future of Sourcehut. I'd be
happy if this email could stimulate a discussion with project maintainers and other Sourcehut users.

As an outsider of the project, I can get a feel about the progress of Sourcehut by reading the blog.

Sourcehut blocking Mastondon instances 5 months ago

From jman to ~sircmpwn/

Hi Drew,

I've noticed this commit:

and then I read this comment on Github[0] ("[...] I have blacklisted
Mastodon User-Agents across SourceHut's services.").

I'd like a bit more context. What does it block exactly? Is this
blocking just images being fetched for previews? Which Sourcehut
services does this affect? Example: what happens if a Mastodon instance
tries to fetch a link in a Sourcehut mailing list? Does it affect also
