I am trying to transfer my gpg secret keyring from gpg1 (1.4.21) to gpg2 (2.1.15) using
gpg2 --import ~/.gnupg/secring.gpg
gpg2 is asking for the passphrases of all the secret keys in the keyring.
Why would it require the passphrases at this stage (I should only have to supply them when using the keys) and how can I prevent this, i.e. import the keyring without supplying passphrases?
System is Arch Linux, kernel 4.7.6. Thanks.
