[erlang-questions] LibreSSL Slides of interest to Erlang users

just stumbled upon these slides:

LibreSSL - An OpenSSL replacement.
The first 30 days,  and where we go from here.


They seem to have made good progress so far (and OpenSSL seems to be 
more horrible that I thought so far).

The longer term goals are interesting for OTP's use also:

Longer Term Goals

- Provide a better (replacement, reduced) API

- Reduce code base even more.

- Split out non-crypto things from libcrypto

- Split libcrypto from libssl.

Since OTP seems to only use libcrypto, having a separate sane version 
of it looks like a good thing.
