Follow the link "Project Site" in the Section "Getting involved."

Check the tracker section, either "Patches" or "Feature Requests"
would be appropriate I think.

I cannot say without considering the consequences more deeply.
My first notion is to have a Gpg4win only torrent to keep 
the currently clear seperation. So all user will get the same
when getting the Gpg4win package.

Do you mean to sign the torrent itself?
Is this necessary if we already have the signatures for the files
that users can verify that could be included in the torrrents?

Yes, the trust-chain is the biggest problems.

See above.

ps: Personally I do prefer text/plain only email, because HTML can contain
a lot more bad stuff.
