Subject Time to add SSL support?
Date Thu, 13 Jan 2000 15:24:46 GMT
This clause from the new crypto export regulations seems to open the door
wide open for adding at least the SSL hooks to Apache.  SSL itself should
be doable as well:

  Global Exports of Unrestricted Encryption Source Code

     Encryption source code which is available to the public
     and which is not subject to an express agreement for
     the payment of a licensing fee or royalty for
     commercial production or sale of any product developed
     with the source code may be exported under a license
     exception without a technical review. The exporter must
     submit to the Bureau of Export Administration a copy of
     the source code, or a written notification of its
     Internet location, by the time of export. Foreign
     products made with the unrestricted source code do not
     require review and classification by the
     U.S. Government for reexport. This license exception
     should apply to exports of most "open source" software.
