SBBS, cryptlib, and Debian
As Peter Gutmanns CryptLib is currently used in a program I'm interested in (SBBS) , I periodically look at packaging it for Debian since it not already in Debian; especially since SBBS upstream includes the source and/or compiled libraries for the cryptlib version they use in the SBBS source code distribution (which Debian is generally against: [embedded code copies]).
However, I again find that there are at least licensing issues against the possibility of packaging cryptlib for Debian, in that I found another note about the issues with cryptlib which I found at www.debian-administration.org. (Note that the entry there also contains a link to a git repository that contains the articles authors work on debian packaging for it.)
Wonder how much trouble it would be to investigate using an SSL library with a better license for SBBS...
