I've got a v.v.brief one:
It's just why I use gnupg rather than a treatise on why someone else should
use it. It is GFDL.
There's also general stuff here:
Elements of each could be combined - the FAQ isn't expressly GFDL but if it's
used for GFDL material I would have no objection.
If that work is sent back to me, I would also be v.happy to publish it as part
of the first site, under the GFDL.
Don't worry about the HTML, a plain text version crafted from these and other
sources would be fine - as long as it can go under the GFDL.

No, you just have to be interested in GNU type stuff - and in most LUG's GnuPG
qualifies as relevant.

Bad choice of email client!
There are plenty of email clients that integrate gpg/pgp very easily. The
resistance is not against gnupg itself but against the change of email
client / problems with the existing client.
