122   AVAILABLE PATCHES
123
124     o CA.pl patch (Damien Miller)
125
126   IN PROGRESS
127
128     o Steve is currently working on (in no particular order):
129         ASN1 code redesign, butchery, replacement.
130         EVP cipher enhancement.
131         Proper (or at least usable) certificate chain verification.
132         Private key, certificate and CRL API and implementation.
133         Developing and bugfixing PKCS#7 (S/MIME code).
134         Various X509 issues: character sets, certificate request extensions.
135     o Geoff and Richard are currently working on:
136         ENGINE (the new code that gives hardware support among others).
137     o Richard is currently working on:
138         UTIL (a new set of library functions to support some higher level
139               functionality that is currently missing).
140         Dynamic thread-lock support.
141         Shared library support for VMS.
142
143   NEEDS PATCH
144
145     o  non-blocking socket on AIX
146     o  $(PERL) in */Makefile.ssl
147     o  "Sign the certificate?" - "n" creates empty certificate file
148
149   OPEN ISSUES
150
151     o internal_verify doesn't know about X509.v3 (basicConstraints
152       CA flag ...)
153
154     o  The Makefile hierarchy and build mechanism is still not a round thing:
155
156        1. The config vs. Configure scripts
157           It's the same nasty situation as for Apache with APACI vs.
158           src/Configure. It confuses.
159           Suggestion: Merge Configure and config into a single configure
160                       script with a Autoconf style interface ;-) and remove
161                       Configure and config. Or even let us use GNU Autoconf
162                       itself. Then we can avoid a lot of those platform checks
163                       which are currently in Configure.
164
165     o  Support for Shared Libraries has to be added at least
166        for the major Unix platforms. The details we can rip from the stuff
167        Ralf has done for the Apache src/Configure script. Ben wants the
168        solution to be really simple.
169
170        Status: Ralf will look how we can easily incorporate the
171                compiler PIC and linker DSO flags from Apache
172                into the OpenSSL Configure script.
173
174                Ulf: +1 for using GNU autoconf and libtool (but not automake,
175                     which apparently is not flexible enough to generate
176                     libcrypto)
177
178
179     o  The perl/ stuff needs a major overhaul. Currently it's
180        totally obsolete. Either we clean it up and enhance it to be up-to-date
181        with the C code or we also could replace it with the really nice
182        Net::SSLeay package we can find under
183        http://www.neuronio.pt/SSLeay.pm.html.  Ralf uses this package for a
184        longer time and it works fine and is a nice Perl module. Best would be
185        to convince the author to work for the OpenSSL project and create a
186        Net::OpenSSL or Crypt::OpenSSL package out of it and maintains it for
187        us.
188
189        Status: Ralf thinks we should both contact the author of Net::SSLeay
190                and look how much effort it is to bring Eric's perl/ stuff up
191                to date.
