Right I have not looked at scrute and poldi for a long time.  There
seems to be not enough interest.  However, I think that gniibe is
maintaining them for Debian.

Do you think we should do a new release for poldi?

Working on GnuPG 2.1 has top prioroty right now.  If there is enough
interest in Poldi, the development shoudl be taken up again.  Is there?

Regarding Scute, I expect that we will start to work on it again in
ralation to Thunderbird.  I know of at least one project which plans to
start working on Thunderbird.

I'll put a note into the Wiki.
