+ - One week of OpenSSL cleanup->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "OpenBSD Journal reports, "After the news of heartbleed broke early last week, the OpenBSD team dove in and started axing it up into shape[...] All combined, there've been over 250 commits cleaning up OpenSSL. In one week."

One developer stated in a response to comments about a new project name, "This is not about a fancy name. This is about realizing belatedly that code we thought of good quality was not even decent, and ended up becoming too complex and unmaintainable. So now we are hurrying to remove everything in the way of exposing the concrete guts of the code, fixing the bad practices inherited from the way we were doing security 15+ years ago""
