[pkg-gnupg-maint] Bug#1009311: dirmngr: should no longer use keys.openpgp.org by default

Package: dirmngr
Version: 2.2.27-3+b1
Severity: normal

The default https://keys.openpgp.org:443 key server is no longer working:

$ gpg -v --recv-keys 7CA7ECAAF06216B90F894146ACF8146CAE8CBBC4
gpg: data source: https://keys.openpgp.org:443
gpg: pub  rsa2048/ACF8146CAE8CBBC4 2019-01-02  
gpg: key ACF8146CAE8CBBC4: new key but contains no user ID - skipped
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg:           w/o user IDs: 1

says: "You are probably using the keys.openpgp.org keyserver, which
has an owner approval system – it will strip all user IDs unless
the owner of the corresponding email address has allowed them to be
published. Try to download the key from elsewhere [...]"

The consequence is that when I want to check a signature made with
this key, I get:

gpg: Signature made 2022-04-09T21:49:20 CEST
gpg:                using RSA key 7CA7ECAAF06216B90F894146ACF8146CAE8CBBC4
gpg: Can't check signature: No public key
