Bug #3704

openssl: exception message wording improvement

Added by pbetteridge (Paul Betteridge) over 10 years ago. Updated over 9 years ago.

Target version:
ruby -v:


When a new connection is created, the hostname of the target is checked against the name in the certificate. If they do not match, an exception is raised. The wording of the message is not quite correct English.

It currently reads: "hostname was not match with the server certificate"

I suggest that it would be better if it read: "hostname does not match the server certificate", but if a smaller change were desired, it could be changed to "hostname was not matched with the server certificate".

A patch against the trunk with my suggested wording is attached
