Bug Description

In the current project description I notice it says:

""Starfish Vault is GPG management simplified. GPG is great for encryption, but as a command line program, suffers from ease-of-use issues. Starfish attempts to rectify this by creating a simple, yet powerful, graphical interface to all of the functionality of gpg.""

Now weather starfish manages to bundle and provide an interface for _all_ the functionality is besides the point, I think we should aim to say what we want to provide for the user, a set of things that we want to do such as:

""Starfish Vault is an easy to use tool for managing your online identity and your secure relationships with others, it's based upon the complex command line gpg tools and aims to focus on the management of identity and the signing of other people's identities to confirm and build up a visible and easy to use web of trust, this web of trust allows you to interact securely with your friends online by signing and even powerfully encrypting your messages and data to each other.""

Something along those lines, also this is key for the wording we give the website too.

I'm with you Martin. I don't think we need directly compete with Seahorse. We won't be doing much advanced stuff. This is for the "get in, get out" management of GPG keys ( in my mind )

I've updated the project's description, now the first sentiment is the short description and the rest is long description. These can also be used in the same way for the debian package.
