Currently, I have mutt pass `--keyring /usr/share/keyrings/...` for each
of the keyrings, so that I can verify signatures on e-mails.  It would
be more natural to just add `keyring /usr/share/keyrings/...` to
~/.gnupg/gpg.conf, but when I tried this I often got errors from gpg
trying to write to the keyrings in /usr/share/keyrings.  Is there some
way to mark a keyring as read-only?

I'm using the keyrings from keyring.debian.org instead of the
packaged ones. That way they are up to date and I don't have the
write errors:

% crontab -l | grep debian-keyring
30 17 * * * /usr/bin/rsync -rlptDq "keyring.debian.org::keyrings/keyrings/*.gpg" /home/gregoa/.gnupg/debian-keyring

(copied from someone/somewhere)

% grep debian-keyring ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf
keyring /home/gregoa/.gnupg/debian-keyring/debian-keyring.gpg
keyring /home/gregoa/.gnupg/debian-keyring/debian-maintainers.gpg
keyring /home/gregoa/.gnupg/debian-keyring/debian-nonupload.gpg
keyring /home/gregoa/.gnupg/debian-keyring/debian-role-keys.gpg
keyring /home/gregoa/.gnupg/debian-keyring/emeritus-keyring.gpg

I can see you are using mutt as well, when you try sign an email,
doesn't mutt complain?

"ambiguous specification of secret key $KEYID" it's what I got then I
cannot sign any email

thanks!
