verify-commit: add option to print raw gpg status information
verify-commit by default displays human-readable output on standard error. However, it can also be useful to get access to the raw gpg status information, which is machine-readable, allowing automated implementation of signing policy. Add a --raw option to make verify-commit produce the gpg status information on standard error instead of the human-readable format. Signed-off-by: brian m. carlson <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
