No need to say sorry, iam really appreciated your help.
I understood what you suggested. But in the specification of my project ,
one user can belong to only one groups. It's hard to implement so that why
i need your help.
I set gid on the gpg folder, so it forces all created files by gpg to have
groupTest1 as group owner. It's ok
But test1 lauche the gpg command, then change the user owner of file to
his, like test1:groupTest1. The result is the admin cannot import a new key
to the keyring.... So your solution doesn't resolve that problem.
And i have a question to you and Werner, how can gpg change the user owner
ship of the file ? normally only root can change the ownership.
