A lot of the documentation I see online includes references to files with
names like "" or "foo.sec" as if these were public key rings and
secret key rings. However, I am accustomed to seeing keyrings like
"pubring.gpg" and "secring.gpg". Were the former of these used as keyring
files in the past, but nowadays the latter format are used?
