Subject: Will OpenSSL's license change impact us?
Date: Sat, 25 Mar 2017 00:51:52 +0100
Message-ID: <CACBZZX6F47uC9jLxppgkUnwVpGV2jpzzP4kwTuqKgayCevomeA@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

They're changing their license[1] to Apache 2 which unlike the current
fuzzy compatibility with the current license[2] is explicitly
incompatible with GPLv2[3].

We use OpenSSL for SHA1 by default unless NO_OPENSSL=YesPlease.

This still hasn't happened, but given the lifetime of git versions
packaged up by distros knowing sooner than later if this is going to
be a practical problem would be good.

If so perhaps we could copy the relevant subset of the code int our
tree, or libressl's, or improve block-sha1.

We also use OpenSSL for git-imap-send, AFAICT with no fallback other
than "don't use ssl" or "use stunnel".
