Keyring corruption with GnuPG 2.1.20

Are there any plans for an imminent 2.1.21 with that fix in? It seems
like a pretty major hiccup.
Easy enough to apply the fix to Homebrew's formula for gnupg (which a
while back switched to tracking the 2.1 instead of 2.0 branch) but may
be worth brew holding off on that if a release is imminent.
