we have many local gpg useflags which basically just enable gpg.
Should we merge these to one global useflag?

Additionally we have a few gpgme useflags.

What are your ideas?

We have also have a bunch of USE=pgp and USE=openpgp, both of which are
more correct than USE=gpg.

Yeah, typical case of "formally correct thing being way more difficult to
understand than colloquially practical thing" ...

You are right.
I would prefer the formally correct "OpenPGP" after reading a bit more.
This is how it is named in the RFCs [1] and this is what we mean.

If we use either gpg or pgp it will raise new questions and confuse the users.

It is better to write 4 additional characters and make it simple and precise.

We can explain all details in the description then.
