OpenSSL 決定把 release site 改到 GitHub 上

OpenSSL 宣佈了之後會以 GitHub 為主要發佈平台:「Releases Distribution Changes」。

舊的 ftp & rsync 以及 git protocol (9418/tcp 的協定) 都打算淘汰掉:

We’re no longer using our old ftp, rsync, and git links for distributing OpenSSL. These were great in their day, but it’s time to move on to something better and safer.

其中 FTP 與 rsync 都已經停掉了,接下來是今年六月要停掉 的 HTTPS 介面以及 的 git protocol: and rsync:// are not available anymore. As of June 1, 2024, we’re also going to shut down and git:// mirrors.

然後主力轉戰到 GitHub 上面:

GitHub is becoming the main distributor of the OpenSSL releases.

算是省事的作法,畢竟自己弄 infrastructure 不算太輕鬆

另外 OpenSSL 畢竟是個歷史頗久的軟體了,有「遵循古法」所以 release 都會有 PGP/GPG sign,這部分如果還是獨立於 GitHub 平台的話就沒什麼問題,代表還是有非 HTTPS 的 integrity 方法可以確認檔案沒被抽換過。

(但如果綁進 CI/CD 流程的話就廢了?)
