Hi Werner, all, 

i'd appreciate if we can close this "GDPR and key servers" subject
and end sending mails about it to three mailing lists. 
The Autocrypt ML subscribers are likely either also subscribed to 
at least one of openpgp-email/gnupg-devel or mostly not
interested in further detailed discussions about key servers. 
so let's at least leave out the Autocrypt ML.
