add file-is-digest option to gnupg2
We would like to include a patch for signing file digests from the OBS project
that is used by and required for the signer. We would like to use this in Copr build system as well as for OBS itself (I am trying to package OBS for Fedora).
Attached patch includes also changes to man pages. I also tried to ask upstream to include this patch , but it's unresolved so far.
Note: We changed the name of the option from the original patch from
'files-are-digests' to 'file-is-digest' as multiple files are not allowed.

may matter, any attempts to upstream this feature yet?
The attempt is the link  above.
I'm willing to include it into our package even if upstream completely rejects this feature. What I do not want to is to have a slightly incompatible patch from upstream one (f.e. upstream changing the option name and otherwise accepting the patch).

Yes, this is a valid reason. Lets wait how the upstream responds although I do not see a high change that it gets accepted.
The maintainer of gnupg rejected the patch, could you now merge it? Thank you.
