There is a report on the mailing list. We should clearly define the rules and we probably need to fix gpg.

werner created this task.

gpg tries to find the "best" key using get_best_pubkey_byname ($1507), but the applied rules are not clearly documented in one place.

werner added a project: Documentation.

I don't think that we need to fix things here. Important is that the WKD import uses a filter which imports only keys with the requested mail address. However, if a key with the same fingerprint already exists it will be merged.
