That website goes against all advice that could be given for a good web font. That's about all I have to say.

There's a bug, fork the code!

Basically describes forks of late, and Mir.

true

edit: though in this instance I think a fork is justified.

It would be better if the fixes are upstreamed given that OpenSSL is so pervasive that it will be difficult to dislodge it. Of course upstreaming involves politics.

I agree to both points.

Honestly, I'd like to knoow if they even bothered sending their ideas upstream. If so and denied, then I can see it as a viable project. If not and just decided to fork for no reason other than "why the hell not?" then I'd have a problem with it.


And thank god I'm not on my phone anymore, I can actually read the website. That script crap needs to die in a fire.

Why justified?

Isn't OpenSSL already FOSS?

Why does their link to OpenSSL go to YouTube?

OpenSSL and other critical software need audits and refactors.... not forks.

In my opinion it's better not to have all your proverbial eggs in one basket. So I'd rather not depend on one single SSL/TLS implementation.

The OpenBSD project has always seen themselves as better than others. Probably why they forked. Though in this case, they probably can do a lot better.
