Infographic: Public-private cryptography lays at the heart of GnuPG's powerful protection, and in order to find keys of friends and contacts, GnuPG users must have a basic understanding of how it works. This isn't easy to explain however - a new infographic would be extremely helpful in showing new users the basic principles of the system.

Hello dear GnuPG Team,
I have several skills that might be usefull for you:

*I'm quite skilled with inkscape and could make an infographic (you tell me what to draw, and I'll make it happen). Also the Pirateparty of Germany has a team of designers that will gladly take over the designing (the content needs to be determent first)

* I'm a native speaker of German, so if you need translating, please let me know

* I did about 7 cryptoparties and would like to provide feedback about the UI, if needed

Wolf: GnuPG has several GUI frontends - for which do you have specific suggestions?

Poster: Crypto is critical, but it isn't very sexy. GnuPG has easy to use clients for Windows, Mac, Gnu/Linux, and Android, but to improve our image we need a poster to spread the word. Humans are visual. Let's give them something to look at.

hey,

do you need spanish version for the goteo campaign? :) I can help with that in case somebody is not actually working on that...
Hace 3 años
in the meantime... i contribute with the spanish translation of the press release announcing the goteo's campaign.

[ES] a modo de contribución, traduje al español el comunicado de prensa anunciando el inicio de la campaña en goteo:

It seems responding to multi-paragraph comments does not work.
Thanks for the Spanish translation. I'll see that I get it online.

Hey Gustav, maybe you have some tips for our proposed website frontend? We're still working on designs. We could send you drafts for comment.

I agree that GnuPG needs to be presented better to get better acceptance of it.

To this end I suggest the technique of bottom up marketing, or the idea of starting with a concept that is very simple and sells, then conforming the product to this marketing idea, (rather than doing things in the reverse order, or conforming the marketing message to the product).

So let me give you an idea. I think the very name "GNUPG" while descriptive, and historically and otherwise important is not very good from a marketing perspective. In fact i think it is rather terrible to the average person.

I would say let's start to think of a simple concept that people resonate with regarding to privacy and security. My first idea is DEADBOLT. Everyone knows what it is and what it does. So what about eDEADBOLT? It resonates with me.

Also, the flip side is I think we need to start referring to 'exposed mail' when we are referring to the unprotected email. (My first idea was for nudemail, but I thought this a bit too racy.)

Well, GnuPG might not be the best name but it is wekl known and changing it is not an option. However, what can be done is to use "GPG" instead of GnuPG. Many folks are using that term anyway and it is easy to pronounce. It also much more gives the idea that it is related to PGP. We settled for "GnuPG" as the name to avoid potential trademark conflicts with PGP. This may or may not be an issue anymore but we better take some care. Your suggestion works only in English.

BTW, gpg.org has already been taken by an unrelated project but we control gnupg.{org,com,net}

Thus I think would be good to talk about "GPG" is the OpenPGP part is meant and use "GnuPG" for the entire system covering several protocols.

Hi Howard, bottom up marketing is good, and so is your idea of simplifying the benefit of GnuPG in order to advertise it more effectively. Would you help us work on that?

Unfortunately we don't see changing the name of the project as viable at this point in time.

Good job. Thanks for that, they make our communication more secure!

Remain it Gunpy and market something that looks like a dog with big ears. BIG EARS.

Our ears aren't big at all. Whatever are you talking about?

Hello,
I gladly supported in GnuPG!
But why is there now a second round? (really, just asking out of interest)
And when do I have to send information regarding my address / size for this nice t-shirt? ;)

Greetings!
