Will I have to reinstall GPGTools after the upgrade?
In that case I'll need a safety copy of my keys, right? How do I make such a backup?

    sorry, this one slipped through the cracks. Excuse the super-late reply!

    Wow, it's been awhile, I forgot all about this.. :-)

    I recently migrated to linux (for many reasons), so I never got to try
    GPGTools in Mavericks.

    Thanks for getting back to me,

    Ha, yeah it's really odd to answer after several years. And yet, I thought it's better than just to ignore the question entirely.

    Have fun on linux though :)
