I used the Synaptic Package Manager gui to search for gnupg2 after adding the
experimental repository in the Settings/repository using the formula given on
the website link provided by Brian Minto (above) :
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian experimental main
Amongst all the items listed then as available in experimental (after reload)
there was nothing shown in Synaptic Package Manager under gnupg.

When I try your way from the command line, I get :
$ apt-cache policy gnupg2
1 http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ experimental/main amd64 Packages
*** 2.0.22-3ubuntu1.1 0
500 http://fr.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty-updates/main amd64 Packages
500 http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty-security/main amd64 Packages
500 http://fr.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty/main amd64 Packages
I'm not sure what this is telling me but I think it is indicating :
1. that 2.1.1 is available in experimental/main Packages.
2. that I have 2.0.22 installed
3. that latest available for my distro (candidate) is 2.0.22
Although I did, last summer, install 2.0.22 using the distro's software centre,
I subsequently used the same software centre to remove it before building 2.0.26
on my own. So I don't know why the above indicates that 2.0.22 is installed.
If I do gpg2 --version, it comes back clearly with 2.0.26. and enigmail clearly
indicates that it has found the gpg2 that I built.
So, moving on, if I do :
apt-get -t experimental install gnupg2
will I get 2.1.1 installed together with its dependencies ?
And returning to my original questions, since it is written that 2.0* and 2.1
cannot co-exist, I suppose that I shall have to remove manually everything
connected with my 2.0.26 ?
