There may be a misunderstanding.

GnuPG is a package that is a part of the GNU operating system.  The list
of all such packages can be found here:


GNU is usually used with the kernel Linux.  GNU doesn't require that
packages support any other kernel (e.g. Hurd).  But the operating system

that it work best on GNU, or at least as well as other operating

The GPL is unrelated to this discussion.
