No it doesn't, and I wish you would all stop personalizing this.
Nobody is accusing anybody else of doing anything, but saying that
there is more in the Windows binary of GnuPG that cannot be put down
to compiler code, which could be due to anything. I, for one, would
like an independent analysis which would confirm or deny this once and
When we speak of cryptographic programs, I am very dependent on
reputation and experience to give me trust. Until I know more of
Werner I am not going to trust him as much as those I do know through
practise and experience, including Imad. Imad has stated something
FACTUALLY which may or may not be true; until it is proven to be false
then I have to be cautious. You, on the other hand, are saying that
you trust Werner more on the basis of practise and experience; I
respect that, and we have an honest difference of views.
Please use my PGP/GnuPG Key ID: 0xE935DB9D
