If it doesn't result in too much of a slowdown, I think it would make sense to do this change. I'd recommend making the choice between ed25519/eccrypto configurable via a flag so that we could compare the two. I'm cc:ing Edsko, who is the main author of hackage-security. _______________________________________________ cabal-devel mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.haskell.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/cabal-devel
