As volunteer

No matter what your strengths and weaknesses are, you can get active for Gpg4win:

Your hints can make users of Gpg4win or one of its components happy. Just pick yourself a task, let others know about on the mailing list and start right away.

  • Write down your opinion. What's good? What's bad? Where is a bug? Is the new version better? Write this repectfully because the respective maintainers are often volunteers.

  • Attract further volunteers and financial backers. For example you could talk to other users. If you know companies or authorities that do already use Gpg4win, encourage them ensure Gpg4win will continue to be a viable software product. Some authorities already sponsored development. Exert influence on politics: Praise the achieved results and demand continuation of support.
