Note that there is
for German speaking discussions about GnuPG usage and related topics.

From my point of view you are missing to discuss the problem that 
most people and companies are not willing to invest resources (time, money)
in more IT security. If all users of GnuPG and Ggp4win gave us one Euro a 
year, this would a real funding. The products are still too hard to use, but 
there is not enough economic incentive to change this. It will need funding
because it really is hard work.

Your draft already recommends a lot from possible users, I doubt that this is 
a good way to bring the masses to crypto. It seems to make life more 
difficult for those that at least try something.

Okay, a mysterious cliff-hanger. What do you know that we don't?
