Hi, just before getting knowledge of Your mail, I filed a feature
request Bug regarding this:

"When own public key is attached, inject it in Autocrypt header, too"

"Allow manual import of autocrypt sender key" has been implemented in

P.S. This mail should be signed (using still TB68+Enigmail) and include
Autocrypt header
