Maybe it's time to realize that OpenSSL has become obsolute. For me it's totally unacceptable that even now the documentation is [STILL INCOMPLETE]. Instead of wasting time with cleaning up a pile of dirt, use that time to start supporting PolarSSL in all your applications. Its code is clean and it is well documented. Once you give PolarSSL a try, I'm sure you will wonder why the hell you were using OpenSSL all that time.

Not GnuTLS, but PolarSSL. Reason for moving away from OpenSSL is because of it's horrible documentation. Or, better said, the lack of any documentation. Tried to implement SNI support in my open source web server (Hiawatha http://www.hiawatha-webserver....), but there was no proper documentation or example code available. With PolarSSL, it was done within a day. All other SSL features were implemented in a more cleaner way. No ugly callback stuff. Even with the OpenSSL 1.0.0 release some time ago their documentation was still incomplete. I seriously don't now how to take a piece of software (specially libraries) serious with proper and complete documentation. I believe proper documentation and support is even more essential to software than code quality.

I do know 'anythin' about OpenBSD. And yes, I was already aware of the things in the online presentation. But OpenBSD is not unique on this matter. Other OSes offer the same functionality. OpenBSD is quite unique on his strong focus on writing correct code. But that alone is not enough for being a 'secure OS'. OpenBSD has security features that other OSes lack, but the same counts for any other OS. If you call OpenBSD secure just because they focus on writing correct code, then you're missing the point about what good security is all about.

"It isn't stealing. When I steal, you don't have what I took from you."

That's not the definition of stealing. It's taking what is not yours without getting permission or paying for it, while you should have. This is also the case with pirating.

Btw, congrats TPB and I hope you live many more years!!

To understand a program you must become both the machine and the program.
