Description Peter Vrabec 2007-10-23 06:22:58 EDT
sendmail 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 Robert Scheck 2008-05-04 07:17:08 EDT
If you really do so, please keep the OpenSSL support in spec file to allow me 
privately easy switching back. IMHO NSS is only one big memory leak.
Comment 2 Bob Relyea 2008-05-14 20:27:31 EDT
Please reference any memory leak bugs in NSS.

NSS goes through extensive testing and is used on a number of servers and is
very sensitive to internal memory leaks, so if you have actual cases where NSS
is actually leaking memory please file the appropriate bugs.

This is no longer on-going effort (see tracker bug).
