Syncing GnuPG data between computers

I use different computers at different times, either my office computer
or one on-site provided by a customer.
I want to be able to propagate changes I make to GnuPG on one computer
to other computer I use, without resorting to duplicating the changes
I currently only manage one GnuPG identity, and its private key material
is stored on a smart card (Yubikey). So I think I'm only caring about
other's keys, trust relationships, and the like.
I do this kind of thing for several data types today, for example my
"dot" files. I use a 'master copy' scheme, where changes made on one
computer are "pushed" to the master copy, and other computers' copies
can be updated by "pulling" from the master copy.
A GnuPG example. If I import, verify, and sign some new keys, I'd
"push" from that computer and then later "pull" from a different
computer so I could use those new keys there.
The GnuPG configuration files are simple enough, but the database files
are another story I imagine.
My search-fu keeps suggesting using gpg import and export, like:
Has anyone else done something like this? Any references or suggestions
