Jonathan, I wanted to give an update for 'alot' and the pygpgme dependency. An upstream developer picked up the patch and rebased it. While verifying it he discovered other GPG bugs in 'alot'. I believe those bugs have been fixed, but the pygpgme=>python-gpg bug is just now being finished up: https://github.com/pazz/alot/pull/1086 Upstream plans to do a new release soon with all these GPG updates. (Hopefully within a week base on the conversation in the pull request above.) I thought it was best to hold off on trying to merge the patch into the older release when a new upstream release should address the dependency issue soon. I'm not sure if/when sid might lose pygpgme, but hopefully we'll have a new upstream release of 'alot' to address the dependency issue before that happens. -Jordan
