Bug#970796: cloud-init: Please add gnupg to Recommends

Package: cloud-init
Version: 20.2-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

cloud-init uses gnupg in two ways: directly, to fetch and export keys
(when specified by ID, see [0]), and via apt-key to add keys to the system
(whether specified via ID or in full, see [1]).  (Even once we remove
apt-key usage[2], we will still need it for the former use case.)

I've just opened a PR[3] to add this to our Ubuntu packaging, and would
request that you do the same so that Debian users are able to configure
custom apt sources using cloud-init configuration.

(My assumption here is that Debian cloud images are built with
--install-recommends; if not, then you may want to consider ensuring
that gnupg is present in Debian cloud images via other means.)
