I don't know.  However they use a set of patches (e.g. allowing 8k keys)
and thus the Mac version diverts from the version.  Actually
Gpg4win does the same but I take care that those patches get back to
upstream.  In fact all but one patch are regular commits done after a
release to fix Windows problems.  The remaining patch extends the GnuPG
version with the Gpg4win version.

I would appreciate if the Mac folks would decide to use gnupg-devel for
development.  It would also be desirable if the new speedo build system
from 2.1 could also be used for Mac OS.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
