Structure of section 'usage'

I want to revert Zen Desu's change which adds GPG as a mode of operation. As I understand it, it makes the structure of the usage section inconsistent: GPG is not a mode of operation, but an application, right? Doesn't GPG use the PC/SC standard to interact with Yubikeys as if they were PIV smartcards? (That's why the link to GPG was included in the PC/SC section) Samb (talk) 14:46, 16 June 2023 (UTC)

This discussion is still ongoing.
I think it makes more sense to have a section for each subpage/yubikey feature. I was trying to reference this page to find the GPG subkey page and I couldn't even find it, i now see that it's under "OpenPGP" and not "GPG: OpenPGP" or something like that. I don't think it's clear looking at PC/SC that GPG would fall under that, especially given that PIV and OpenPGP are totally different yubikey modules (Refer to the table).

Maybe it uses the PC/SC interface to configure gpg, but in all of my time using a yubikey i've always configure the openpgp module using gnupg or the ykman program, generally using any PIV or other PC/SC tools conflicts with GPG working properly

Alright, sounds like PGP indeed should be in there.
