Ah, is this already documented?
Rule of thumb is that if one person, asks, ten have had the same question. :)

If Werner did not say so, 
no entry is necessary as he is the main GPGol developer.
In many development groups I do the entries right away as
they are less easily forgotten compare to an email discussion.

This is a community, to get this further, we need funding, publicity and help.

Fortunately gpg4win 1.0 was funded by the German Federal Agency
of IT Security (see http://www.bsi.de/produkte/gpg4win/index.htm in German)
which allowed us to do a major step. This project is long finished though
and since then we did quite a bit without further funds.

So any contribution is helpful like your feedback!

No problem.
I think it is a lack of time on Werner's side.
Your test and writing it up took quite a bit of time as well
and time can be more worth then money sometimes.
