Seems SourceTree requires gpg2 exist but brewed gpg won't install it

Install gpg with `brew install gpg` and configure git to use it.


Then SourceTree keeps bothering

error: gpg failed to sign the data

fatal: failed to write commit object


While `git commit` in terminal doesn't


I have set the GPG program path `/usr/local/Cellar/gnupg/2.1.23/bin`


If I `ln -s gpg gpg2`, the problem solves


I don't want to use GPG Tools or something like that. So thank you for this hint, it saved my day ;-)
