   No pwscf does not compute transport a2F. In order to do this you may
compare equations 4,5, 8 and 9 from the paper you cite. Then you can modify
the code in file PH/elphon.f90, subroutine elphsum.
You grep on "la2F" and you go to the place where the phonon
linewidth "gamma" is calculated (around line 600).
Gamma is given as a function of the mode "nu" and the broadening "isig".

Since the efficiency factor depends both on mode and on k-point,
you have to start your changes where gamma depends
on k, in objects: gf, ctemp, noint, g3.

Do you use option la2F=.true., or you do it in older fashion?

Please let me know whether you see what needs to be done.
If not I will change this part.

  Have fun,
