Hi folks,

I would like to say a big thank you! Thanks to your excellent help
(and well-designed API), I have been able to complete the world's
first implementation of ietf-syslog-transport-tls-12. There is one
thing dangling, and that is the callback I would like to have for
certificate validation during the handshake. However, I will look into
providing a patch if that turns out to become a real problem.

Please note that I have chosen GnuTLS over NSS because of its much
better documentation (at least for non-Netscape stand alone projects).
What I did not know at the time I made the decision was the ultra-fast
speed with which you provided support on the mailing list. This is an
even better feature :)

I know all of this is quite off-topic, but I thought it should still be said ;)

If you are interested, you may have a look at my implementation report:


Keep up the good work :)
