I saw the following on the Gemini mailing list:
Perhaps take a look at "[gentoo-dev] [RFC] Discontinuing LibreSSL support?". Fascinating dynamic.
I only use LibreSSL because it comes with
an easier to use API than the base LibreSSL (which itself was forked years ago from OpenSSL for various reasons).
It seems that over the years,
the API between LibreSSL and OpenSSL have drifted and now the Linux distribution of Genntoo is thinking of dropping support for LibreSSL.
It doesn't affect me,
since I'm not using Gentoo
(and the last time I used Gentoo was a rather stressful time).
I just install it from source
(and it's a pain to use too, because I don't want to destroy my existing OpenSSL installation).
happy to see a port of
libtls to OpenSSL,
as that would make it easier to keep using

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
