Use gpg-agent for svn password caching

2018-10-04

svn gpg-agent 

Here’s how to configure gpg-agent for in memory svn password caching.

Install gpg agent:

$ sudo apt-get install gnupg-agent

Make sure pinentry is present. Usually pinentry-curses is present, to avoid the curses version, install pinentry-tty and configure it to be used for gpg in ~/.gnupg/gpg-agent.conf:

$ sudo apt-get install pinentry-tty
$ echo "pinentry-program /usr/bin/pinentry-tty" >> ~/.gnupg/gpg-agent.conf
$ gpg-connect-agent reloadagent /bye

~/.bash_profile

...
GPG_TTY=$(tty)
export GPG_TTY
eval $(gpg-agent --daemon)

Configure subversion to use gpg as password storage:

~/.subversion/config

[auth]
password-stores = gpg-agent

~/.subversion/servers

[global]
store-passwords = yes
store-plaintext-passwords = no
