I am not that deep into the status of GnuPG documentation.
However, in case it is that outdated as some people wrote, is a
completely re-write from scratch an option?

This would allow for a modern up-to-date documentation with a new
licence model and fresh content management to attract a wider range
of audience.

Just my 2 cents ...

All in all, one of the most disturbing things today is the definitive
fact that the NSA, GCHQ, and many more government organizations are
massively terrorizing the freedom of us and the next generations.
