[Gpg4win-users-en] Improving the First Contact with Kleopatra for gpg4win-3

While we have now Kleopatra for Gpg4win-3 in a good technical shape, we are 
starting to move on to User Interface improvements.

One thing among others which has us concerned is the "First Start" experience 
with Kleopatra. While most of our use centers around E-Mail encryption we also 
want to provide a decent User Experience for someone that does not have the 
assistance of their Mail Client when setting up Gpg4win.

After installation Kleopatra as our main "User Facing" Application is started. 
And there is an empty table, some stuff about certificates, nothing to see about 
encryption. At this point we are probably in the "This is too complicated" 
corner already. :-/

So I've tried to think from the perspective of three User Stories which I 
think are probably the most important ones from the "First Contact 
perspective" and tried to come up with Ideas and mockups how to improve the 
"discovery" of how things work and put them on the wiki:


In my ideas I also add a data centric view to Kleopatra to better be able to 
step away from the "Certificate centric" Keylist.

I would like to hear your Ideas, too and especially how you came into contact 
with Gpg4win and what your first experience with Kleopatra was and how you 
think it could have been improved.

Please note that this is just a rough draft of my personal ideas at this 
point. And some of the mockups are pretty ugly as I've just hacked them into 
kleo and did not want to spend too much time on layout.


Sorry for the crosspost to gpg4win-devel please respond to the gpg4win-users-
