I would lean more toward keeping the crypto code in separate
distributions for a while longer. When we folded the cvs-crypto CVSup
collection into cvs-all, I got an e-mail from one person who was quite
upset because he assumed it meant that crypto wouldn't be in separate
binary distributions any more. At least to him, it was important to
keep the ability to be completely crypto-free.
It's no longer possible to be crypto free if you're a -current user.
Make of that what you will.
As for changing the crypto distributions, I would recommend holding off
until the RSA patent expires before making any more changes in the
crypto structure. At that time we will have to alter our current crypto
mechanisms anyway so it makes much more sense to do it all at once.
It's a lot easier if you can issue a HEADS UP warning people not to
update during a given window and then make all of your crypto related
repository changes at once, following up with instructions on how to use
the new crypto collections and the official notice to begin updating
