I didnt even know that "mml2015" was. I'm not sure I do now. There is a
huge chance I am confused about the whole thing. I only know I used the
gnus manual and wiki resources before and set up pgg without any
trouble. The whole epa/epg/mml2015 set seems, at first glance,  to be
poorly documented for a defacto default.

Yes, this was my point. There is next to no documentation.
