[edit] Feedback and Contributions

  • Note that manual pages and the FAQ are maintained with the source code.
  • If you are unsure as to whether a feature will be useful for the general OpenSSL community please discuss it on the openssl-dev mailing list first. Someone may be already working on the same thing or there may be a good reason as to why that feature isn't implemented.
  • Submit a pull request for each separate fix (also documented there)
  • Submit a bug report for the issue and reference the pull request
  • Contributing fixes and other improvements to the web site
