OpenSSH 8.0 was released yesterday, one change being:

> 128-bit equivalent symmetric security level.
This points to
GnuPG 2.2.15 still has RSA 2048 as default, although Debian (and
Debian-based distros) ship with 3072 as default.
I would be in favor of following OpenSSH and increasing the default RSA
key size to 3072 bits.
If you upload your address book to "the cloud", I don't want to be in it.
