In GnuPG 2.1:
--quick-sign-key fpr [names]
--quick-lsign-key fpr [names]
Directly sign a key from the passphrase without any further user
interaction. The fpr must be the verified primary fingerprint
of a key in the local keyring. If no names are given, all useful
user ids are signed; with given [names] only useful user ids
matching one of theses names are signed. The command --quick-
lsign-key marks the signatures as non-exportable. If such a
non-exportable signature already exists the --quick-sign-key
turns it into a exportable signature.
This command uses reasonable defaults and thus does not provide
the full flexibility of the "sign" subcommand from --edit-key.
Its intended use is to help unattended key signing by utilizing
a list of verified fingerprints.
