[Openvas-devel] Start: replacing OpenSSL by GNU/TLS

after the infrastructure is back, I'd like to see the coding works
The major and most important task, IMHO, is to replace OpenSSL by
GNU/TLS. There is no OpenSSL exception for the server
part. It is therefore illegal to distribute binary packages.
This should be motivation enough to help doing this job ;-)
Please speak up if you offer help (coding, testing, sponsoring
coders, ...). The intitial tasks I see so far are:
- sync openvas-libraries with nessus-libraries
- clean up openvas-libraries (renaming etc)
- replace OpenSSL by OpenVAS (my tests last year
showed that it will not be sufficient to apply the
OpenSSL compatibility mode of GNU/TLS for openvas-server;
probably this holds true for openvas-libraries as well).
One question occured to me:
Does it make sense at all to allow compilation without SSL?
IMHO, SSL should be mandatory, but I'd be happy to stand corrected.
