Most mailing lists have topics; this one is about GnuPG.

Despite that the GNU maintainer rules say that we shall not mention
proprietary software at all (one of the conflicts between the FSF and
Debian), it is okay for me to discuss interoperability issues and
similar things between proprietary and free implementations of OpenPGP
and S/MIME on the gnupg lists.  However, pointing users to a software
without mentioning that it is non-free software, deserves a comment.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
