Where "development process" means development of OpenSSL itself, not software dependent on OpenSSL. Since openssl is primarily a developer toolkit, not end-user software, the openssl-users list is really for developers, just not developers of OpenSSL itself. > If we agree that mailing lists are preferrable to GitHub threads, then we > should not close down openssl-dev. Well, but we now have "openssl-project" for discussions of the ongoing development of OpenSSL. It is mostly for team members, but though it is moderated, IIRC others can join and post. > Because openssl-project is readonly for most developers s/developers/users/ > and I don't think it would be a good idea to join openssl-dev > and openssl-users. Well, I've been on both for a long time, and mostly find that I wish the openssl-dev posts were on openssl-users instead, they really mostly aren't about ongoing OpenSSL development. -- Viktor. -- openssl-dev mailing list To unsubscribe: https://mta.openssl.org/mailman/listinfo/openssl-dev
