I do have the secret keys., could you provide me the pgp command for
Should I do this using pgp -ke for each one of them ? ( Have around 50
such keys to be migrated )
Gpg is able to load the key with "--allow-non-selfsigned-uid" but is
unable to use the key for encryption - I guess this will be fixed once I
self sign the key and load into gpg ring.

If you still have the secret key, you can have the key sign itself and
then this error will not occur. Otherwise, you can use the option in
to import the key, and then have it sign itself.
Death to all fanatics!
Down with categorical imperative!
