Subject Re: IDEA patent issue with bcprov in repo on ws zone?
Date Thu, 31 Jan 2008 02:14:46 GMT
WSS4J and Rampart right now picks up the bouncycastle jars from here. 
And we need to distribute the library with the releases. Is this 
possible now? Should we remove the bouncycastle jars from the m2 repo?
