Currently, gnupload defaults to GPG="gpg" which in turn defaults to gpg
1. This is a little painful as the handling of gpg-agent has changed
substantially between gpg1 and gpg2. I notice that a lot of online
documentation assumes gpg2 nowadays ("gpg-agent is started on need...").
Would it be possible to add support for gpg2 to gnupload? Just editing
the GPG="gpg" to GPG="gpgp2" works for me....
You should be able to get the desired effect without changing the
tool: instead, create a symlink in a directory that is earlier than
that of gpg (e.g., in your ~/bin directory) that is named "gpg" and
that points to the program you want to use in its place. Then it
should just work.
The trouble with hard-coding a version number in the name of the tool
is that many are already using a "gpg" that is version 2, and may not
have the "2"-suffixed name around at all.
