Hi, I should probably have chimed in earlier. Originally I was referring to the GPG manual:
In DETAILS.gz in version 2.1, the section on "Unattended key generation" now has been deleted and says "Please see the GnuPG manual for a description", which I assume refers to the above page. I had hoped this might be in the gnupg-doc package, but this is not the case.
