Apologies if this is an obvious question; I may have missed the answer
in the thread.
Does this affect Linux users?
That is to say, will there be an option to use GnuPG, as I am doing now
with Enigmail? I would guess that I am not alone in using my GPG keys
for other uses/applications other than Thunderbird, and I would hate to
have to maintain a separate subkey if Thunderbird can't utilize the
existing GPG agent.
