Without gpgme (and libgpg-error), there is no crypto in balsa, and also

crypto) and the application. It would also be nice to have the GnuPG
frontend gpa in, but it again depends on gpgme/libgpg-error.
I spoke with one of the GPGME developers, who said that the API should be
fairly stable as of 0.9 and they are not expecting any big changes before
1.0. So, I've dropped a note to that effect in Fedora bugzilla under the
bug requesting GPGME. They are aware that the Fedora Balsa and Sylpheed
packages are waiting on this for their crypto support. I'll see if they
are ready to include it at this point in time.
Other than that, all I see at the moment is:
On exit balsa leaves behind a process preventing balsa from running again
I've seen this three times before on FC2, so I thought I might try to track
it down. I've recompiled the Fedora package to get a non-stripped binary,
but haven't got the problem to manifest itself yet. I'll keep trying.

Is this bug also present in HEAD? If not, and if fixing it would be too
much work I suppose it could just be listed as a known bug with a
workaround of "edit the .gnome2/balsa file by hand". I ran into this
problem, but I'm not sure how many other people bother to re-arrange their
I'm afraid the GTK/GNOME GUI API is something I have yet to ever look at.
I suppose I could try as long as people put the good china away. :^)
