Imad R. Faiad's opinion about GnuPG
Wed Jul 18 22:54:02 2001
> For your info, Imad has given his opinion about GnuPG in the newsgroup
> comp.security.pgp.discuss (thread "Moved from 2.63i to PGP6", messages dated
> July 9 and next days, see http://www.deja.com).
> In few words, he says : "Do not use GnuPG in a production environment"
> (written in CAPS), GPL is a theft of the standards and intellectual
> properties, and finaly... GnuPG is "snake oil" ;-)
>From what I read in those groups I conclude something has happened between
Imad and some people related to the gpg project and it seems that personal
dislikes are governing the reactions. I think this is very pitty, because
the ones that are loosing are the people who might depend on reliable
crypto software. IMO this dispute should end ASAP!
