Description Olav Seyfarth 2009-05-30 00:43:36 UTC
Version:           2.0.8-svn967884 (2009-05-14) (using KDE 4.1.4)
OS:                MS Windows
Installed from:    MS Windows

The certificate generation wizard should urge the user to create a revocation certificate, at least prior to allowing him to upload his key to a server. The user should be able to skip this step but be warned about implications.

Also, when saving the (secret key), the dialog should propose a default file name like "UID (KeyID).gpg/asc".

important feature. Who can help implement this?
Comment 2 Daniel Kahn Gillmor 2015-02-17 19:49:45 UTC
I agree that this is important.  There should also be a way to generate a revocation certificate manually, which there currently is not.
Comment 3 Daniel Kahn Gillmor 2015-02-17 19:50:55 UTC
note that gpg 2.1 automatically creates revocation certificates in `~/.gnupg/openpgp-revocs.d/` upon key creation.  Perhaps if kleopatra is using an older version of gpg as a backend, it could do the same?  this would avoid the need to add any special user interface initially.
