Hello to all,

well it's a good thing, that openPGP shall be included to TB directly.

But ... as the Mozilla wiki [1] states in the FAQ-Section the following:

Q: Will OpenPGP cards be supported for private key storage ?

A: Probably not, because we don't use the GnuPG software that's usually
   required to access OpenPGP smartcards.

This will not be usefull for me or my company, as we only use PGP Keys
stored on smartcards.
So I guess we will have to take TB down and find other solutions.
