Subject Re: [jira] Updated: (DIRSERVER-877) BouncyCastle IP issues with IDEA algo included in jars
Date Fri, 23 Mar 2007 15:57:15 GMT
Can we just create a Directory equivalent of this same jar ... like add it
as a module so we do not have to depend on a Geronimo release cycle for
this?

Let's just fork the project that Rick created and call it the shared-bc
thingy or something.  It can have the IDEA files stripped out of it.
