Hi Nico,

Just to be clear, this is an "OpenPGP in EMAIL" Summit, not a general
OpenPGP Summit?

I'm asking this because my company is working with OpenPGP but not in an
email framework.  Indeed, we're only using OpenPGP Key/Signature Formats
and not any of the OpenPGP messaging systems.  But it sounds like this
use-case input isn't desired for this Summit?
