Well, the problems with using WKD is 1) You need to host your own web server 2) It assumes people will know how to set it up and have done so 3) It still requires people to manage and handle the keys.
These barriers to entry make it too hard for me to recommend it to people. Heck, I can't even do it myself because I use GitHub Pages.
I don't know, that's without mentioning the relatively weak encryption of pgp when compared to more modern protocols.
I like matrix, xmpp is okay but I no longer know anyone who uses it so I just stick to matrix as my go-to for secure messaging.
Btw, does anyone encrypt email in a email git workflow? That sounds like a nightmare.
I don't use mailing lists but that makes sense, ig.
Heavyness is a Synapse server problem afaik, Dendrite is lightweight enough that they crammed it in browser for the Matrix P2P experiment. Conduit seemed good too.
IRC might be more simple but it's also unusable as a modern chat program imo. IRC's simplicity is its biggest downfall. It can't cut it for mobile and it's just generally a bad experience.
I thought WKD required web server config?
Well, that's cool, I suppose. I still can't care enough to do it though, I just know I'll just never do PGP with someone because well, I don't email people.
