143   AVAILABLE PATCHES
144
145     o CA.pl patch (Damien Miller)
146
147   IN PROGRESS
148
149     o Steve is currently working on (in no particular order):
150         ASN1 code redesign, butchery, replacement.
151         EVP cipher enhancement.
152         Proper (or at least usable) certificate chain verification.
153         Private key, certificate and CRL API and implementation.
154         Developing and bugfixing PKCS#7 (S/MIME code).
155         Various X509 issues: character sets, certificate request extensions.
156     o Geoff and Richard are currently working on:
157         ENGINE (the new code that gives hardware support among others).
158     o Richard is currently working on:
159         UTIL (a new set of library functions to support some higher level
160               functionality that is currently missing).
161         Dynamic thread-lock support.
162         Shared library support for VMS.
163
164   NEEDS PATCH
165
166     o  non-blocking socket on AIX
167     o  $(PERL) in */Makefile.ssl
168     o  "Sign the certificate?" - "n" creates empty certificate file
169
170   OPEN ISSUES
171
172     o internal_verify doesn't know about X509.v3 (basicConstraints
173       CA flag ...)
174
175     o  The Makefile hierarchy and build mechanism is still not a round thing:
176
177        1. The config vs. Configure scripts
178           It's the same nasty situation as for Apache with APACI vs.
179           src/Configure. It confuses.
180           Suggestion: Merge Configure and config into a single configure
181                       script with a Autoconf style interface ;-) and remove
182                       Configure and config. Or even let us use GNU Autoconf
183                       itself. Then we can avoid a lot of those platform checks
184                       which are currently in Configure.
185
186     o  Support for Shared Libraries has to be added at least
187        for the major Unix platforms. The details we can rip from the stuff
188        Ralf has done for the Apache src/Configure script. Ben wants the
189        solution to be really simple.
190
191        Status: Ralf will look how we can easily incorporate the
192                compiler PIC and linker DSO flags from Apache
193                into the OpenSSL Configure script.
194
195                Ulf: +1 for using GNU autoconf and libtool (but not automake,
196                     which apparently is not flexible enough to generate
197                     libcrypto)
198
199
200     o  The perl/ stuff needs a major overhaul. Currently it's
201        totally obsolete. Either we clean it up and enhance it to be up-to-date
202        with the C code or we also could replace it with the really nice
203        Net::SSLeay package we can find under
204        http://www.neuronio.pt/SSLeay.pm.html.  Ralf uses this package for a
205        longer time and it works fine and is a nice Perl module. Best would be
206        to convince the author to work for the OpenSSL project and create a
207        Net::OpenSSL or Crypt::OpenSSL package out of it and maintains it for
208        us.
209
210        Status: Ralf thinks we should both contact the author of Net::SSLeay
211                and look how much effort it is to bring Eric's perl/ stuff up
212                to date.
