Do encyclopedia entries for software projects make sense? matt 17:25 Feb 24, 2003 (UTC)


If they are important software projects, yes. The Anome 17:30 Feb 24, 2003 (UTC)

Yeah, that's what I think. Linux yes. Stunnel no. matt 03:59 Feb 25, 2003 (UTC)
Why not? It is not like we are concerned with limited space and have to pick and choose between the two. We can have both. Each software project should be given the attention it deserves. If stunnel is not important, not a lot needs to be said about it. Does the article add to human knowledge? yes. Does it somehow minimize articles on other software projects? no.

Unix --> Unix-like?[edit]

Is it more correct to say "most Unix-like operating systems" rather than "most Unix operating systems"? After reviewing the page on unix-like operating systems, I decided it was, and made the change... lenehey

Anti-security?[edit]

From the given example:

"Network traffic from clients connecting to the mail server on port 465 would initially pass over SSL to the Stunnel application, which would then transparently forward unsecured traffic to port 25 of the mail server."

So stunnel is good for faking security when there actually is none? Weird example. --Abdull (talk) 23:33, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

The example is valid. Stunnel is being used to add a security layer to a mail server, not a client, and thus enables encrypted traffic over the open Internet.--Chrisj1948 (talk) 09:42, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
