I’m not trying to step on anyone’s toes, but is there any work being done on updating the Compendium? I mean last update 2016?
currently there no work scheduled on the compendium.
There are multiple reasons:
a) there are newer ways for a good software product: less documentation, but more discoverability
b) the structure of the old compendium was not working this well anymore (the idea to write a single book)
c) (a short supply of funding and staffers)
d) other ways of documentation are used more
Some parts of the compendium might be good to keep, but in a different structure.
Thank you for the reply as I was curious about what happened. Could you recommend which text files/pdfs I should look for in it’s place?
it depends on what you want to learn.
Some things are more self-explanatory now. Others are explained elsewhere.
The wiki.gnupg.org has some part of the trouble sections.
So what are you looking for?
