On FS , Tom suggested to make gpgme depend on just one of gnupg and
gnupg2, and I further argued that we do not need two versions of gnupg
in our repos.
I propose to:
- Upgrade gnupg to upstream latest stable, that is version 2.0.
- Symlink /usr/bin/gpg to /usr/bin/gpg2 for backward compatibility.
- Remove the gnupg2 package from our repos.
See  for an updated gnupg PKGBUILD.
I have been running these changes on my system for months with no issue.
There have been rumors of problems , but as far I can tell it's FUD:
nobody ever reported a concrete issue.
I'm bringing this up here at Andreas' request: any opinions?
