It is primarilly a developers/testers list.  The c.s.pgp newsgroups are
probably better for general discussion.

As for key portability, maybe.  The DSA keys I made with Unix PGP 5.0
(actually the 5.0i code base) work just fine in GPG.  The trick is to do
ASCII exports of both your public and secret keys, and then import them
into GPG.  Werner's GPG web site has a document that goes into detail.
Version: GnuPG v0.9.2 (GNU/Linux)
