Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSERVER-877) BouncyCastle IP issues with IDEA algo included in jars
Date Mon, 26 Mar 2007 19:17:32 GMT


David Jencks commented on DIRSERVER-877:

Can we remove the bouncycastle mention from root pom dependency management before any releases?
 It looks to me as if it is still in the 1.5 pom.xml, I didn't check the 1.0.1 pom

Also, geronimo is going to remove most of the classes recently added to support this to avoid
any possible question about whether any of them implement encryption algorithms that might
be covered by export regulations.  So... don't try to go back to using the geronimo-util solution
