Description

=begin
OpenSSL is famous security library and Ruby has a wrapper for it.
But it has no maintainer now.
We, aren't familiar with this security related library, don't want maintain this.
This situation prevent merging path for OpenSSL 1.0 and other requests.

So anyone can maintain ext/openssl or review patches for ext/openssl?

History

#1 Updated by Chris Saunders over 4 years ago

=begin
I am rather interested in Cryptography and have used this library before and found
the documentation rather lacking.

I would be interested in picking this project up though I am having some issues.

I've tried checking out the code through here:
http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/rubypki/

I keep getting errors when I try to checkout using 'git cvsimport' or by using cvs.

Anyone having similar problems and or suggestions?

#2 Updated by Dirkjan Bussink over 4 years ago

=begin
Well, the code for the OpenSSL extension is inside the Ruby repository, so you'll have to look for the code there. Take a look at:

#3 Updated by Evan Phoenix over 4 years ago

=begin
I've been working on getting the OpenSSL extension running on Rubinius. I'm happy to finish doing some cleanup and submitting the changes back. Since we'll have our own changes, I'll be doing maintenance on it, and i'm happy to to push that maintenance into the normal OpenSSL extension.

In the long term, Chris' point is important.
Current ext/openssl is too low layer, and net/http is also low.
We should introduce another wrapper layer in the future.

Interesting suggestion.
How about this, matz?

If Evan wants committer privilege to check in his update, I'd love to
grant him a right. I am more than happy if he's willing to maintain
openssl extension for MRI as well, but I don't think he has offered
so.

|Sorry about the confusion. I'm happy to take over maintenance of the extension for MRI as well. This will allow me to have MRI and rubinius use the same extension.

Thank you! Please send your GPG signed ssh2 public key to
cvs-admin@rubu-lang.org with sought account name. We will grant you
the privilege.

Ack. I have not. I do not have GPG installed, is there an easier way to get you my ssh2 key?

They generously allowed me to use Mail.app encryption. I know several of them are sporting macs now. :)

We need some signed message.
Following articles describes how to use GPG on Mail App on Mac OS X including Snow Leopard, but in Japanese.
Can anyone who has Snow Leopard teach him?

=begin
The ssh key and the GPG key are two different things.

The ssh public key lives in ~/.ssh/.id_dsa.pub.

Here's a GPG tutorial: http://aplawrence.com/Basics/gpg.html
For email encryption/signing, I've found Thunderbird + Enigmail to be an excellent combination.
