in reply to cpanp install, gpg: Can't check signature: No public key

I don't know about cpanp, but cpan and cpanm each have an option for forcing an install even when tests fail.

perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

    It seems that this is something to do with cryptographic signature verification (integrity checking) of the package content, not a test-failure.   I know that there is an o conf setting for this in ordinary CPAN, which can turn this feature on or off, but I can’t speak to this particular scenario.   I would like to know how it shakes out ...

    In cpanp (and I presume in cpan):
    CPAN Terminal> s conf signature 0

      Okay, and if a GPG signature is missing ... can someone please document here how one properly retrieves and installs it?   (Does someone, like, have to read that hex key-id and enter it by hand into a separate command to pull the PK down from a keyserver?   How gauche ...   For all those of us who don’t know the answer, what is the answer to this one?)

        If you're using the cli

        gpg --import keyfile

        gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys eyeid

        I'm sure there are ways to autoimport keys, but I don't know how
