what's the rationale to enable the gnupg sockets in post_install of the package?
I don't disagree that the sockets maybe should be enabled (I have them enabled for me), it's just a strange way to enable them in post_install, and linking them in /etc/
Why doesn't the PKGBUILD make the symlinks in /usr/lib/systemd/user/sockets.target.wants/ ?
I did that in the pulseaudio package at first and people complained that they couldn't "disable" the pulseaudio socket and "mask" also prevented a manual start.
Hence I moved pulseaudio from static symlinks to enable/disable post_install.
GnuPG follows this.
dbus does that for ex.
The DBus `make install` sets it up that way; it wasn't a downstream decision.
