Hi Friends of GnuPG,
right now I am thinking about the properties and use cases
for OpenPGP compared to axolotl  and OMEMO .
The advertisment page for Conversation's OMEMO support 
claims that it is superior to OpenPGP:
| OMEMO not only gives you a better encryption features than OpenPGP and OTR
| but is also much easier to setup.
And I wonder in which situations this is true.
OMEMO says it does the trick of being "forward secret" and
offline capable. Is this even possible while being end-to-end,
e.g. not trusting a service provider?
If I am offline I could not create ephemeral session keys
or does this depend on previously exchanged keys?
Does somebody has pointer to in depth analysis?
