I agree with you. It was a great event with great people, talks and very
interesting discussions. I love to see the community growing !

I'm at Berlin airport now, on my way to sunny Canaries :)

The GNU PG key pair is at the client side, so we should be OK for
signing / validating documents.

So, we shouldn't need to ship / generate key pairs for GnuPG. What I
would do is to make sure that GPG and it's related python library .

For the 2.8 version (Tryton 3.4), the gnuhealth installation program
call the "serverpass" script, that tightens security using cracklib and 
encrypts the master server password.

Hope this helps. Let me know your thoughts.

All the best
