Interestingly enough, I was included in both the To: & Cc: fields of
this posts; however, the mailing list itself was suspiciously absent.
Obviously the poster failed to read or comprehend the disclaimer.

In any case, they also probably missed this announcement:

GnuPG 2.0 is the new modularized version of GnuPG supporting OpenPGP and S/MIME

The emphasis would be on "new modularized version"

My question was related to why the poster thought 2.x was unstable. His
reply was to peruse the archives for some specific data. That search

phenomena. It might well be worth pointing out that they also were
related to a previously superseded version. Now, if that poster can
show proof that the latest 2.x version is unstable we might have
something to discuss. Otherwise, it is just yesterdays news.
