replace hkps with https for default key server

Reported by steve | March 10th, 2022 @ 08:24 PM | in 1.11 (closed)


Default key server is hkps://keys.openpgp.org. While https://keys.openpgp.org can be entered and used, it will never show but always switch back to hkps://keys.openpgp.org.


We should switch to https://keys.openpgp.org as default key server address. It communicates that the key server is also usable via web and users are probably more familiar with https than hkps.

    https is handled differently than hkps thus this change will not be implemented. Closing as wontfix and we'll stick with hkps
