as you may know from the users mailing list I am working on something by the 
idea "increase the use of OpenPGP by increasing knowledge about it", too:


This had a focus different from yours and will be limited to Germany / German 
at least for a while but I am willing to help towards your project.

Really? In which way? I am annoyed because it seems not to be possible to 
configure openSUSE to start gpg-agent with SSH. Instead ssh-agent is started 
as a seperate process. IIRC this was different in earlier versions. I admit I 
have not complained about that in the bugtracking system yet.

Really? If editing requires an OpenPGP key? ;-)
