Hello Werner,

Could you tell us (I don't think I'm the only person interested) what
would this mean in terms of development of GnuPG (when it comes down to
your involvement in the project)?

I apologise if my question is inappropriate. I'd also like to emphasize
that it's not my intention to start any kind of heated debate regarding
this topic.

Best regards
