       --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.  By default, or if a name is prefixed
              with a '*', a case insensitive substring match is used.
              If a name is prefixed with a '=' a case sensitive exact
              match is done.

              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.
