Yes, I am on Debian sid and I use the snapshot package provided by i.e.

,----[ C-h v emacs-version RET ]
| emacs-version is a variable defined in `version.el'.

ok, here it is

,----[ C-h v mml2015-use RET ]
| mml2015-use is a variable defined in `mml2015.el'.
| Its value is epg
| Documentation:

Well, here is the problem, I am not exactly skilled with elisp but I
could definitely work things out with a bit documentation on the matter.

Anyways, I am glad++ you answered because a lot of folks seem to run
into that problem but then either give up after trying numerous times to
work it out with pgg (which is wrong as we/I know now; should be epg) or
simply do not start signing/encrypting their messages at all even they
know it is epg they need to look at.

I also agree with Richard on the fact that there is no decent piece of
docu/information about the fact

 - that it is not pgg but epg one should look into plus
 - no docu about setting up signing with epg at all; all I found is this

Daiki, do you think you could provide an example for switching keys
based on their key ID and using gnus-parameters? That would be awesome!
