We've proposed this before, and I think this idea was mostly approved by the group, but no-one ever got around to doing it. I'd like to propose again that we do this. I'll try to get to this myself, but if I can't get this done, we'll at least have a plan of action. I propose that we - Rename the root package 'gnu.crypto' to 'gnu.javax.crypto' in GNU Crypto, and merge the current CVS sources into Classpath (not under external/). We then put GNU Crypto into a kind of "stasis" mode, and continue to develop these sources in Classpath.i think once the merge is done GNU Crypto can be retired all together.
We could do that, and it might be the de facto result, anyway.But I've always thought that GNU Crypto's goals are a little wider in scope than crypto support in Classpath, so it is useful on its own. The best example is where GNU Crypto provides interesting APIs (assembly, AEAD modes) that the J2SE doesn't have.
