I don't know what "sunset of PKCS#1 padding usage" means, but if it 
leads to having all the JWA available in GnuTLS, I'm up for it! :-)

This also raises a question about FIPS, the ES256k (Digital Signature 
with secp256k1 Curve Key) is not present in GnuTLS, I don't remember 
where I saw that, but I recall it's because secp256k1 curve isn't 
available in the FIPS standards.
Is that so?

Thanks, I'm not an expert in cryptographic algorithms and standard, but 
if I have other ideas, I'll add to this wiki!
