We should also take in account that pubring.kbx is astlo often updated if
you are using gpgsm.  This is because an S/MIME commonly includes the
public keys and gpgsm imports them.  Some of those key may be expired
after some time but that just adds another update to keyring.kbx).  Now
we could just ignore the S/MIME base but we should also consider that
there are OpenPGP use suggestions which demand that the public key is
send with each message.

A dedicated ~/.gnupg sync system is IMHO better than a limited solution
for just one class of objects.  Fortunately, in the course of the
Gpg4all project we need to look at synchronization issues anyway.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
