Hi Patrick,

I am too busy with other things right now but a quick note anyway:

We should have a meeting of key developers asap to discuss such things.
Having it during a conference (e.g. FOSDEM) is IMHO not sufficient.  It
would be better to have a small dedicated meeting.

Okay, let's improve on that.

There is one for may years - it always bugs me when using my standard
test passphrase "abc".  The current method is quite primitive but you
can hook in other checks.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
