gnupg 2.1.0 is unable to connect to HKPS (HKP/HTTPS) keyservers.

It needs to be built with gnutls as a dependency (at least until the built-in ntbtls is finished).
This task depends upon

Currently gnutls is in [extra] and depends on a few other packages from [extra]; I am a little reluctant to add all this to [core]. Do you have any idea whether ntbtls is expected to be ready in the near future?

I request to have this re-opened because the packages as is broke existing functionality. Whatever dependencies GnuTLS brings into core has to be better than ntbtls which isn't even in extra.

Who are you to say that GnuTLS "has to be better"? Are you a contributor to gnutls? To ntbtls? To gnupg? To Arch Linux?

If you have nothing constructive to contribute, there is nothing more to say. We are aware our current gnupg package does not support HKPS. Whining will do nothing to help fix that.

I didn't say gnutls is better. I said, in the absense of ntbtls, having HKPS working with GnuTLS is better. Right now, GnuPG is crippled. [Edit: Removed reference to deviating from upstream due to technical inaccuracy.]

Please. There is no deviation from upstream...
