@Dymaxion@twitter.com @SonOfSunTzu@twitter.com @firstname.lastname@example.org Jokes aside, the Delta Chat folks actually got funding which they have been using to do user studies, including pretty solid work on the UX around encrypted decentralized group chat and improving on Autocrypt's baseline security.
They're actually doing great work, IMO.
It remains to be seen if this will actually be put into practice. Historically, the CDU (or their Bavarian branch #CSU) has been the driving force behind many terrible decisions on public IT infrastructure, such es the end of #LiMux in #Munich. But maybe there's hope after all?
