I was taking a look at the listed packages: why do you ship FireGPG
firefox extension?

it's not yet an officially accepted mozilla extension and last avalaible
version has some nasty issues:
+ it phones home at firefox startup, it's a user configurable behaviour
but nevertheless I'll double check for proxy usage (I'm pretty sure it
will honor ff settings but you should take a look nevertheless)
+ it doesn't use the well tested enigmail javascript IPC to call external
programs (on windows it even uses a binary only program called hidden

FireGPG developers are aware of the issues and are (slowly) working them
out, until some good news I'd reconsider its usage.
