Re: Freeswan in Debian, or: Why I am such a bad maintainer

So please tell me what you think. If there's no real compelling reason to keep both, I'd really like to drop freeswan in favor of openswan.

I just had the case that freeswan would not work anymore. A disabled a tunnel some time ago, build a new kernel later and wanted to enable it last week. It is a roadwarrior setup, where on the server side pluto just segfaults when an ipsec connection is tried to be established. I used freeswan-modules-source_2.04-7. 2.04-9 was not buildable. The discussion about openswan come just in time. I tried openswan an it worked out of the box. So I will try to replace freeswan with all of my tunnels (~10) in the next time.
