Subject Re: Export Notification - Using BouncyCastle in Tuscany Rel 1.0
Date Sun, 16 Sep 2007 05:23:14 GMT
As far as Tuscany is concerned our dependency on BouncyCastle comes thro our
use of Rampart 1.3.  I just checked up the Rampart distros and it does have
the bouncy castle jar packed in it - releases and snapshots (eg.
http://people.apache.org/dist/rampart/nightly/rampart-SNAPSHOT.zip).  Though
this is an indirect dependency I know its impending on Tuscany to
individually address legal implications.  If there is something that Rampart
has followed for this, then I'd like to know that to follow in Tuscany as
well.

Thanks
