Description Peter Vrabec 2007-10-23 06:22:17 EDT
pwlib should be ported to use NSS library for cryptography.
See the tracking bug for details and links on how it could be done.
Comment 1 Daniel Veillard 2007-10-23 07:52:47 EDT
Details seems to imply a local fork of the code for Fedora, this doesn't
seems viable unless you accept to take the responsability for the forked
package. I won't mess with security related code, see my comment #5 in
the tracking bug,

Comment 2 John Poelstra 2008-08-27 23:38:30 EDT
What is the next step for this bug?
Comment 3 Peter Robinson 2008-10-09 16:35:00 EDT
Moving this to ptlib component as pwlib is now replaced by it.

I suspect the best way forward would be to provide patches to upstream with options to use openssl or nss.
Comment 4 Peter Robinson 2010-11-30 08:27:13 EST
Closing as a won't fix unless someone provides a patch.
