By default, GnuPG does not prompt you for a signature level.  If you
want to be prompted, use '--ask-cert-level'.

If you want to specify, but not be prompted each time, use
'--default-cert-level n' where n is 0, 1, 2 or 3.  The default is 0.

GnuPG can be configured to ignore certain signature levels.  Use
'--min-cert-level' to set the minimum level you want to accept.  The
default is 2.
