Description : A modern OpenPGP implementation in Rust
Sequoia offers an OpenPGP interface in a modern, memory-safe language.
It offers two command-line utilities (sq and sqv) in addition to its
Rust library implementation.
In the future, it aims to to offer a C foreign function interface
(FFI) and python bindings as well.
This will likely be packaged via the Rust packaging team for now,
using the debcargo-conf workflow, which means that sequoia itself will
get broken into several distinct packages (one per crate). I intend
to close this ITP when the "sq" command line utility enters debian,
though i consider other packages to be working toward the same goal.
