Subject [PGP] choose another name?
Date Thu, 19 May 2005 07:22:02 GMT
something like this has been needed for a while so it's great to see it
happening.

but i do have some concerns about the name

phil zimmermann's pretty good privacy program is almost universally
abbreviated to pgp. the name commons-pgp is not only close to a related
commercial product but the term PGP is plastered all over our
communications. i wonder whether it might be better to adopt another
name now (at this early stage) which doesn't carry the risk difficulties
later (for example: commons-openpgp, commons-crypt, commons-sign etc).
