usage of different crypto libraries is quite cluttered over the openSUSE

Those include:
Mozilla's NSS

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

We are working this way, but slowly.

Mozilla NSS is the current favorite, if license permits.
