The GPGME release was tested with gpg, not gpg2. gpg is what GPGME
configure searches for and uses by default. But now that gpg2 starts
to get used more frequently, I think it makes sense to add a
compilation against gpg2 to the pre-release test procedure.

Because making a release costs time and money. Not only for g10 Code,
but also for all distributions etc. who want to stay up to date. By
requesting a release one is effectively saying that the changes since
the last release are worth these costs, and in this case I don't think so.

Sometimes things fall off the table. If you send me a list with open
issues I can respond to them specifically and individually.
