The last time I gave the FAQ a thorough read-and-review was in October
2017, so it was time for a review. I fought off the urge to rewrite the
thing entirely -- I really don't like how it flows, but I view my job as
maintainer is more about making minor incremental changes than total
rewrites whenever the whim seizes me.
Anyway, the major changes:
* Every reference to the SKS keyserver network now points to
keys.openpgp.org. Reason: the SKS attacks a few months ago.
* All references to 2048-bit crypto are updated to refer to 3072-bit
crypto. Reason: GnuPG now defaults to 3072-bit RSA.
* PGPNET's email address has changed.
... Those were the high-priority changes that needed to be made. If
anyone has other suggestions, speak up: I'm listening. :)
(Note: I just committed the FAQ changes. It may take a couple of days
for the documentation on the website to be regenerated.)
