Without using tempfile:
with open(osp.expanduser("~/.authinfo.gpg"), "rb") as f:
status = gpg.decrypt_file(f, output=".authinfo.txt")
info = netrc.netrc(".authinfo.txt")
I get the error:
NetrcParseError: bad follower token 'port' (.authinfo.txt, line 1)
which is interesting. The structure of ~/.authinfo.gpg is:
machine my.server.com login user at foo.com password mypasswd port 587
so it seems this is not what netrc.netrc expects.
