I think people who create a real merge via "git pull" and use that
as "auto-deployment" mechanism is insane, but presumably that "auto"
tells us some other things, like it will be done by non-human account,
its $HOME/.gnupg would contain only the keyring that is for the auto
deployer, or the cronscript that runs "git pull" can set GNUPGHOME
and export it before doing so.

So, I wouldn't be worried about it too much.
