Well, I quite invested some time in trying to argue for optimization of different parts of the gnupg product strategy. I also tried to offer to participate in writing down use-cases, do requirement engineering and EOL procedure optimization, e.g. see bottom of [1]. Maybe you do not know, what effort is behind that, or maybe you do but such offers are of no value for gnupg community, as they do not match the current strategy or maybe there is some other reason I do not know about (but I am interested in) for your replying that way.
