comment GPG and PAR2 error correction data from the plain archive, will it compromise security?
@fgrieu: that's what the Why? is for, because I am really interested in why it is bad, if it's bad. Neither answer so far addresses that.

@D.W.: I agree with fgrieu, from the redundancy standpoint the second option seems safer.

so you are saying the encrypted archives along with the error correction data of the plain archives can be used to break the GPG encryption? (1) but the other (2) is secure? How can the error correction data be leveraged in breaking the encryption? Technically it's not plain text. This is why this question seemed intriguing to me.

@fgrieu: in scenario one it would be from the plain archive data, in scenario two from the encrypted. Edited.
