GPG Suite: Reason for Uninstall, bothered by update notifications, Airmail gpg framework
you asked for a reason to uninstall here: https://gpgtools.tenderapp.com/kb/faq/uninstall-gpg-suite
I’m doing so, because I find the popup to update a little annoying and am not using GPGTolls that much, because it’s not working with Airmail on my Mac as described here:
I’d like it to work with Airmail and maybe there’s a better way to inform users about updates - e. g. only doing so when they are actually using GPG Tools.
macOS 10.13.6 17G8030 GPG Suite 2018.5 2368 (6f26711) GPG Mail 3.0.1 1347 (39fef82b) Trial Expired GPG Keychain 1.4.6 1514 (560b5a9) GPG Services 1.11.6 1056 (ad0c960) MacGPG 2.2.10 921 (b487092) GPG Suite Preferences 2.1.4 1077 (ad934a9) Libmacgpg 0.8.7 895 (78f424a) pinentry 1.1.0 10 (1ff8803)

thanks for sharing.
Please note that the GitHubAirmailPlugIn-Framework issue #15 you linked is unrelated to GPG Suite and MacGPG. We are not developing the Airmail GPG Plugin. So if you are looking for GPG Support in Airmail, please get in touch with the developers of that software.
In general we would highly recommend staying on the latest GPG Suite as that will ensure you have the latest fixes and security patches. E.g. 2019.1 lists "Update GnuPG to 2.2.17 which includes mitigations against recent key server attacks" which is really important and should not be skipped. Otherwise you are vulnerable to the key flooding attack which will corrupt your gpg setup and prevent any operation.
Also see: https://gpgtools.org/releases/gpgsuite/2019.1/release-notes.html
If you still want to stay on the old release, the update notification has an option to "Skip this update" and you will not see further notifications. Also if you are bothered by the update infos, you can disable the automatic update checks in System Preferences > GPG Suite (which we do not recommend).
Hope this helps.
Have a great weekend,
