I'd also like to know how to donate and receive a preview - is there a minimum donation required, and is returning the download link for the preview automated?

    Hi Ryder,

    there's no minimum for the donation and you can find all payment info here:

    The download link will be sent out manually within 24 hours. Most often it takes 10 minutes, dependent on time of day.

    Thanks - done & done. Hoping to see that preview soon.

    For what it's worth, god almighty do I hate using PayPal.

    As a last note -- is no one using the gpgtools-devel mailing list anymore? I've seen nothing new since September.

    Thank you very much for your support! We really appreciate it!
    The instructions on how to obtain GPGMail for Mountain Lion should already be in your inbox.

    It's become really silent lately and we're currently in a kind of restructuring phase to better cope with the limited time on our hands.

    This comment was split into a new discussion: GPGMail for Mountain Lion donation only decision

    The decision for the donation only version of GPGMail for Mountain Lion was not made light-heartedly - believe me - but the time we could devote to GPGTools was so limited, that we either had to find a way to get something back or otherwise consider discontinuing it all together.

    get something back

    Do you see what you said there?

    It's hard to see the good will that drains away from deciding to quietly and clumsily put a pay wall in the middle of an open source project for your benefit. But drain it has, and drain it will.

    You've chosen poorly. I hope you consider further.

    Agreed it maybe have been clumsy and would we not have had to choose between abandoning the project due to even less time we could devote to it and a quick way to make free time for the mountain lion build we might have taken a different path.

    We love the idea of open source and will continue to release our code and no one would have benefited from even more delay. So we chose the donation model and that way managed to get a preview build out. There's still a lot of work ahead and we effortlessly continue to put the time in, but we couldn't have done this without the donation model, so I think in the end it was the right thing to do.

    The source code has also been up for quite some time now and everyone is welcome to build it and use it or best case of all even contribute some patches.

    And no, the benefit was not for us but for the project and for the users.

    And please don't hijack other people's threads, simply create a new one.
    Otherwise Ryder will be receiving a bunch of emails he might or might not care about.
