Hi,

usage of different crypto libraries is quite cluttered over the openSUSE
distribution (actually every Linux distribution).
Those include:
OpenSSL
Mozilla's NSS
GnuTLS
libgcrypt

This is caused by different things and can't be avoided but I'm still
wondering about a few things:

- is there a policy which framework to use if the upstream project
offers more options?
- if there is no policy yet should there be one?
- would it make sense to join or introduce an own project like Fedora's
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraCryptoConsolidation

We are working this way, but slowly.

Mozilla NSS is the current favorite, if license permits.

Ciao, Marcus
