So as a security related project I think we should take a lead with respect to
hardening our code. I've just taken the latest openvas* source packages and
rebuilt them using DEB_BUILD_HARDENING=1 (http://wiki.debian.org/Hardening).
I will run it for a week or two on x86_64 to see if it shows any bugs up but
if not, I would like to apply it to the official packaging. Does anyone have
any issues with such a plan?
PS Anyone compiling for other platforms is welcome to join in this exercise...
and in fact we should consider moving the hardening into the mainline build
tree in due course?
