Ideas for articles covering GnuGP integration

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing as of December 26, 2017.

This article does not cover tools such as pgp4pine, gpgpine, evolution, and Windows GPG tools. Windows tools certainly do not coverage on this wiki, however it may be nice to cover the following mail clients' integration with GnuGP:

Configuring gpg-agent and pinentry

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

Section "Configuring gpg-agent and pinentry": Currently the example codeblock for gpg-agent lists the --no-grab option, why? https://www.gnupg.org/documentation/manuals/gnupg/Agent-Options.html says:

--no-grab
Tell the pinentry not to grab the keyboard and mouse. This option should in general not be used to avoid X-sniffing attacks.

Moving chatty content to a guide article

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing as of June 26, 2017.

This article reads very much like many of the higher quality 'Guide' articles that we have floating around the wiki. I'm wanting to move much of the chatty (but nice for a relaxed read) content to a /Guide subarticle. I would revise the main article to more in-line with an Article Blueprint layout. Any objections to me doing so? Kind regards, --Maffblaster (talk) 00:10, 27 June 2017 (UTC)

Please don't. You would end up having almost all content in the subarticle leaving an almost meaningless main article like e.g. Localization or Initramfs. However, adding references to Handbook:AMD64/Installation/Media#Linux_based_verification and Handbook:AMD64/Working/Features#Validated_Gentoo_repository_snapshots would be nice.
