Re: [Geary] GPG/OpenPGP support

Hi Robert,

I'm trying to keep the amount of accounts I open on the internet as low
as possible, so I'll respond here once more.

Verifying signatures is a nice thing, sure. For me personally, it's
about being able to encrypt messages, though (instead of sending them
through the internet as postcards everybody who wants to can take a look
at). In what way that would be implemented (inline PGP, PGP/MIME,
S/MIME, whatever) I don't really care as long as it "just works"
(including HTML and attachments, as I understand that these seem to be
distinct topics). I hope that's what you wanted to know about and look
forward to getting rid of old clumsy Thunderbird+Enigmail one day!

Best regards,

if there was going to be PGP support for Geary

I'm curious what you (as in everyone, not Jonathan specifically) means
when asking for PGP support.  There's signing messages, verifying
signatures, encrypting messages, and decrypting messages.  There's
inline PGP, PGP/MIME, S/MIME (okay, not exactly PGP, but still), and
probably other standards I haven't heard about.  Which of these can
you not live without, and which would just be icing on the cake?  "PGP
support" is a huge problem, but "verifying inline PGP signatures" is a
bit more tractable.

Just so everyone knows, there is a bug tracking PGP support:  You might do
better to respond there, so whoever decides to attack this problem
will see it.



Privacy is not a crime. No perceived freedom of speech means no democracy.
