Sam is preparing the campaign and twittering on .  This campaign will be about a better
website and easier accessible information on GnuPG.  Sam already has
some sketches for the new website for example

GnuPG has for too long been a tool like a sendmail/exim/postfix but
deserves more user attention.  This is what we want to change.

In the course of the preparation, Sam convinced be that we need Twitter
and even web site statistics.  I have done the latter only the first two
years of running GnuPG but stopped that for privacy reasons.  Now we
installed Piwik and people with JS enabled are tracked by us. Of course
this is pseudo-anonymized and we won't hand out the raw data to anyone
outside of g10 code.  Piwik gives some interesting insights, for example
most direct visits to come from  Aside from the
usual Google triggered visits, and are
top listed referrers for has 2000 to 3000 visits a
day, 1500 to 2500.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
