Pls. see on top of my fresh post:

And that was short explanation.It's signing in git that I stumbled upon, because I don't want to use gpg-agent and they seem to be forcing it upon users.
[[ still looks like having been cut short, because there are issues that cry so loud in there, so loud, they break from in between the lines very forcefully, if you have enough alert on the right side of the privacy/freedom/surveillance issues ]]
[[ No, I don't claim anything, I suspect only. Strongly ]]
[[ Because.. read on... ]]
Because, do you see any more, or much less of that thread on the original list? Tell me, somebody, pls.:
the thread is on this page (search for "pipe passphrase to unlock key"):
http://lists.gnupg.org/pipermail/gnupg- ... hread.html
and the message is here:

and it has no links to any replies there on that page, only other topics..
And now, praise to people from Debian, thanks to whom, I still don't have to use gpg-agent in Debian.
(or is is just not moving so fast as Gentoo moves? I hope it's not just that. I use Testing in Debian and Testing in Gentoo... )
Namely, in my new Gentoo installation, for gentle readers' perusal:
Air-Gapped Gentoo Install, Tentative
and I suffer from same gpg-agent inposition, can't sign nothing with GnuPG unless I enable it... Which I don't want to do.
Why not? Do I have to say? Are there people willing to discuss it?
It's in the mailing list on Gossamer's and not on the original GnuPG list (sic!), the why. No, not blatantly obvious, but it is there.
But let me see, if there are people interested in this topic.
I do need the GnuPG, and no program forced upon me for just feeding passwords that I type to GnuPG. Really, really I don't see why I would need that.
