Hi,

I wanted to announce a new Fedora Project that will span several distro releases and outline the reasons why we are starting this project. I believe this issue affects the whole Open Source Community. But don't think anyone has explained all the issues.



We're looking for people interested in enabling NSS in their packages and feeding the changes upstream.
A list of packages that need to be looked at can now be found at: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/CryptoConsolidationScorecard

Take a look if you are interested in helping out!

For those unfamiliar with NSS, its the Secure Sockets library in FireFox. There are already several applications using it such as Thunderbird and evolution. More information about it can be found here:
