I'm posting a mail here regarding Debian removing OpenSSL support from SIPp
sent to Olivier yesterday:
As the nit-picks at Debian removed OpenSSL linkage from SIPp (sip-tester) in
Debian and derivatives it kind of cripples an otherwise excellent tool.
Seems like they would re-include OpenSSL if SIPp were to add a special
exception for OpenSSL in the license. A few other GPL projects seems to have
adopted the text below (from climm, http://www.climm.org/). The only other
solution would be to replace OpenSSL with something like gnutls or similar.
"In addition, as a special exception permission is granted to link the
code of this release of climm with the OpenSSL project's "OpenSSL"
library, and distribute the linked executables. You must obey the GNU
General Public License in all respects for all of the code used other
than "OpenSSL". If you modify this file, you may extend this exception
to your version of the file, but you are not obligated to do so. If you
do not wish to do so, delete this exception statement from your version
of this file."
