Improve OpenPGP documentation
- Link to the OpenPGP features of Seahorse, for example the key management feature.
- Link to general introduction to OpenPGP, for example:
- Mention Enigmail and point to the Thunderbird documentation
“Paperkey reduces the amount of data
to be printed to the bare minimum (secret part of key) and adds
checksums which allow for easier restore of the key when typing it in or
dealing with dirty scans.”

I have a doubt… I’m working on a page about Seahorse, but should I put the link to gnupg.org there and consider I’m solving Bug #6568 and this one at the same time? Or does OpenPGP deserve a dedicated page? If so, what else would go in it - we can link to the Seahorse page I’m working on, but we’d better not duplicate information, so 2 links seem not enough content to deserve a page.

That’s a bit up to you and you should probably try out things and see how they go.
Maybe I would try first to have a general page about OpenPGP and include Seahorse in there. That page would also be a parent page for the documentation of the OpenPGP Applet. Also check out if we have other OpenPGP related tools. If so, then you could make Bug #6568 a subtask of this one.
Regarding pointing to gnupg.org. Well, we have to do this because it’s upstream but I’m not sure it’s the best documentation about OpenPGP in the world and we should look for other ones (possible translated already). So I would have a look at Security-in-a-Box and the EFF Self-defense Guide first. They must have stuff about explaning the concepts behind OpenPGP and we know they are maintained and translated somehow.
