gnupg executable name strangeness
I installed pkg:/firstname.lastname@example.org, and to my surprise, there was no 'gpg' executable. The executable that's installed is gpg2 (in /usr/bin).
Sadly, there are many utilities (including git) that assume that gpg is called gpg, and they fail in all sort of weird ways. For example,
$ git tag -u C7958FFE foo
fatal: exec gpg failed.
error: gpg failed to sign the tag
fatal: unable to sign the tag

Josef - no need for us to do anything. You can easily symlink gpg to gpgv2, this is how it is done by other distros to differentiate from gpgv1 installs so it is normal to package it this way (not a bug).

This is not fixed upstream and not gnupg not provided in oi-build yet. This can be done by distro provider once within local repo or just added by post install script. Otherwise, there may be a very good reason not included in build by upstream so check and confirm before reopening this ticket.
