OpenPGP.org and GnuPG
Wed Mar 19 12:18:01 2003
The web site www.openpgp.org has no link at all for GnuPG versions on
his page download : http://www.openpgp.org/resources/downloads.shtml
The links given to download OpenPGP are the pgp.com, pgpi.com, or
The name "GnuPG" or GPG appears only at the "Members" page.
I think it is not a good thing : GnuPG is the most famous free OpenPGP
version and it must be here.
Last week, I had a discussion by e-mail with Philip Zimmermann, and I
said him some people may think he is misappropriating the name
"OpenPGP.org", and that he done this because he sells PGP(tm)
www.pgp.com and FileCrypt www.veridis.com/openpgp/
Philip Zimmermann replied me that the "Download" page at the openpgp.org
web site was not updated since his beginning (2 or 3 years ago, I
think), then he said me in another e-mail that I was "insulting" him.
Unfortunately, he didn't changed the "Download" page at www.openpgp.org
and GnuPG is still not there :-(
Do you think it is a good thing that GnuPG is not shown in the
www.openpgp.org "Download" page ?
I see by doing a whois that the domain "openpgp.org" is owned by the
"OpenPGP Research Group".

Do you know if this "OpenPGP Research Group" part of the IETF-OpenPGP
working group ?
