Hello there! I'm HacKan, and currently a new pass user. However, I've
been following development for a while, I like it.

I noticed the repo site doesn't have an issue tracker, and I would like
to propose two additions to pass: a way to add files (text or binary) to
the storage and a way to certify items in the storage.

Currently, to achieve the first I gpg'ed the file manually and output
the result inside pass storage dir, but it's rather inconvenient.
Something like pass insert <pass-name> <filepath> would be better.

For the second, I noticed that from commit
there's an option to sign files. I'm not sure how do you plan to
implement such feature, if signing items individually and then verifying
prior use, but I was thinking that an easy way to do it is simply
mantain a /signed/ SHA512SUMS file on the root of the pass dir, and
update it during insertions or modifications. This allows to ensure each
item's authenticity, and also backwards compat since implementing it on
an older "database" is pretty easy.

Let me know of your thought on those ideas, if there's another place to
put them instead of this mailing list, and also if I should
clarify/expand them.
