Subject RE: Changes in mod_ssl
Date Tue, 15 Nov 2011 13:54:37 GMT
Hello Rainer, 

I found out that the patch that I used in order to connect apache server with SSL using our
HSM to hold the Private RSA and Certificate already exists in bugzilla at:

https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=42687

We found out that this patch works well. We would like to insert it in to the open source
code. 

What is the status of this patch and what can I do in order to insert the patch to open source
code?

Regards, 

Moran Jacuel | Software Engineer | ARX

Yes, mod_ssl for the Apache web server 2.x is part of the Apache web 
server project.

Some notes about contributing patches are available at:

http://httpd.apache.org/dev/patches.html

For a substantial contribution we would need a signed Contributor 
License Agreement (CLA), see

http://www.apache.org/licenses/#clas

In order to document the availability of a patch and track its use, I 
suggest you open a bugzilla issue and attach the patch there:

https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/

For a bigger patch you can also discuss the patch on this list before or 
after opening the bugzilla issue.

Regards,

Rainer
