just wanted to report that that Cherry ST-2100 smartcard reader
responded without further configuration on Debian Buster
with gnupg2-2.2.20-1~bpo10+1.

Do we have a good place to collect experience reports about devices
and tokens? 

Just tested gpg --card-status, do we have a good test (plan) or list
what people would want to know about a cardreader or security token?

Is it possible to test a security token and then completely reset it
into the state before (aka factory reset)?
