The gnupg website has some issues.
- The release note page: https://gnupg.org/download/release_notes.html
is missing release notes for the past two releases. At the time of writing, the current
release is 2.1.19, but the last entry on that page is 2.1.17.
Would it be useful to make a kind of "release checklist" file which can be used around
the time of a release to check this kind of thing is not forgotten in the future?
- Again, on the release notes page:
"2.1.19 is the stable and modern version of GnuPG"
But on the download page, 2.1.19 is the modern release, and 2.0.30 is the stable
- What is the status of gpg-1.x?
This version is not mentioned on the download page any more. Is it dead now? Should
downstream packagers start deprecating this too?
On the release notes page there is a comment: "Version 1.4.21 is from the old GnuPG-1
series, which is useful to decrypt PGP-2 encrypted data.", which is open to
interpretation. It would help if you could be more explicit.
I wonder if the comments about versions on the release notes page should be
moved/massaged into the download page.
