|Summary||0005188: merchant should not store reserve private keys as strings in the configuration|
|Description||This is bad because:|
1. For all other private keys we have files that we reference in the configuration.
2. It's not possible to use gnunet-ecc to get the public key from a private key that's in base32crockford encoding.
3. We never want private keys to ever linger around in command line histories or command line arguments at all.

9f1ca1783f92c9f4e8ad795a5329dc60f78261b5 implements this in the merchant, basically changing the configuration option from tip_reserve_priv to tip_reserve_priv_filename and expecting the file to contain the private key. The documentation was also updated.
I made corresponding changes to the deployment in 4fbc4e6..11d307b, but did not test those yet (on a train...), maybe Florian or Marcello could make sure the deployment still works?
||(Assigning to Marcello to re-test deployment and/or put in the 'basic' level of funding for the tipping reserve.)|
||Oh, also, I noticed that the reserve is funded via reservemod. That kind-of works, but it is awkward in that it'll cause the taler-wire-auditor to fail when it compares bank records to exchange records. It would be better if we could trigger an /admin/add/incomming at the bank instead, and have the bank trigger (soon via taler-exchange-wirewatch - i.e. the exchange polls the bank's /history) the exchange's balance modification.|
Oh, and having a command-line tool to trigger such a wire transfer at the bank might be neat. I'll file a separate feature report for that. => 0005195
||Tried while deploying the 'demo' setup; works. Other issues discussed here have dedicate bug numbers now, closing this.|
