Description David Walser 2018-04-27 18:31:33 CEST
openswan is dead and libreswan was forked from it to continue its development.  There are likely several security vulnerabilities that are unfixed in our package.  Other distros have already made the switch.  We should also make the switch or drop it if we aren't going to maintain the package.
