gnupg-2.1.3-3 <- on arch linux
bug report there:

Steps to reproduce:
$ gpg --edit-key [your key id]
gpg> toggle

What should happen:
You should now see a listing of the secret key and the secret parts of its subkey.

What actually happens:
You still see the public keys as if you hadn't used the toggle command.



Event Timeline

The command should be removed because it does not make much sense anymore.
However, it is doumented at many places thus it is not easy to remove.

perhaps I missed something but...with the command removed how are we able to see
the private keys (esp the details on where they are stored (smartcards)).

werner claimed this task.

Meanwhile the toggle command is a dummy and the extra infos for secret keys are
always displayed.
