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.
