auto-key-retrieve only working with new signatures

Reported by Mento | May 11th, 2020 @ 12:09 PM | in 2.2.20 (closed)

If the option auto-key-retrieve is set and a signature should be verified, dirmngr will only download the signers key from the keyserver, if the fingerprint of that key is in the signature.
In earlier versions of GnuPG (< 2.1.16), dirmngr could also search for the key id.

This behavior is expected and (poorly) documented.

This leads to a situation, where auto-key-retrieve does not work for old signatures because they don't contain the fingerprint.
