+# Final work submission
+ - Differs from [original proposal](https://gitlab.com/J08nY/pgpmailman-proposal/blob/master/original.pdf)
+ - Done as a plugin for Mailman Core, instead of in-tree. [ref](https://mail.python.org/pipermail/mailman-developers/2017-March/026023.html)
+ - [repository@gitlab](https://gitlab.com/J08nY/mailman-pgp)
+ - Plugin for Mailman Core.
+ - Enables creating a PGP mailing list, which has a list key, can receive and serve messages encrypted, can sign and receive signed messages from subscribers.
+ - Creates the `key` email command, which is used for per-address user key management.
+ - Subscription to a PGP enabled mailing list the subscribing address to send and confirm an address public key, which the moderator must verify.
+ - Somewhat confirms the user has possession of the appropriate private key to the one sent on subscription.
+ - Has per-list settings for encryption/signatures/what to do with non encrypted /non signed messages, etc..
+ - Optionally exposes a REST API for list configuration.
+ - Has local archivers which can store the messages encrypted by the list key.
+ - Stores list and address keys in configurable key directories.
+ - requires (currently not merged) MRs in Mailman Core
+ - [mailman/pluggable-components](https://gitlab.com/mailman/mailman/merge_requests/288)
+ - [mailman/list-style-descriptions](https://gitlab.com/mailman/mailman/merge_requests/289)
+ - [mailman/pluggable-workflows](https://gitlab.com/mailman/mailman/merge_requests/299)
+ - [mailman/pipelines-dynamical-instantiation](https://gitlab.com/mailman/mailman/merge_requests/287), merged
+ - additional MR (not required)
+ - [mailman/mta-smtps-starttls](https://gitlab.com/mailman/mailman/merge_requests/286)
+ - Required branches are merged and maintained at [J08nY/mailman/plugin](https://gitlab.com/J08nY/mailman/tree/plugin).
+ - To install, do `pip install mailman-pgp`, warning: it will pull in a development version of [Mailman Core](https://gitlab.com/J08nY/mailman/tree/plugin) and [PGPy](https://github.com/SecurityInnovation/PGPy).
+ - [repository@gitlab](https://gitlab.com/J08nY/django-pgpmailman)
+ - A Django app, uses django-mailman3 and mailmanclient, integrates well with Postorius and HyperKitty.
+ - Provides management of PGP enabled mailing lists to the list owner, and of PGP related subscription settings to the subscriber.
+ - requires (currently not merged) MRs in mailmanclient, django-mailman3, Postorius and HyperKitty
+ - [mailmanclient/plugin-bindings](https://gitlab.com/mailman/mailmanclient/merge_requests/34)
+ - [django-mailman3/template-chunks](https://gitlab.com/mailman/django-mailman3/merge_requests/8)
+ - [postorius/template-chunks](https://gitlab.com/mailman/postorius/merge_requests/215)
+ - [hyperkitty/template-chunks](https://gitlab.com/mailman/hyperkitty/merge_requests/65)
+ - [repository@gitlab](https://gitlab.com/J08nY/mailman-rest-events)
+ - A plugin for Mailman Core that turned out to be unnecessary for the working of django-pgpmailman, but implemented a similar feature as this [MR](https://gitlab.com/mailman/mailman/merge_requests/264).
+ - This plugin sends the events (and some information about them) from Mailman Core to a list of configurable endpoints using JSON in HTTP POST requests.
+## Other contributions
+ - [mailmanclient/split-sources](https://gitlab.com/mailman/mailmanclient/merge_requests/38), merged
+ - [postorius/list-style-selection](https://gitlab.com/mailman/postorius/merge_requests/214)
+ - Many many PRs to [PGPy](https://github.com/SecurityInnovation/PGPy), a Python only implementation of OpenPGP. [19 PRs](https://github.com/SecurityInnovation/PGPy/pulls?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=is%3Apr%20author%3AJ08nY) and counting. As PGPy was not and still is not feature complete in regards to RFC4880 I found out many times that it's missing features/bugs broke mailman-pgp CI. It would not make sense fixing them locally, both from a software design perspective and open source software one aswell. \ No newline at end of file
