Re: [paho-dev] Use alternative to openssl in paho C++ libraries

Hi Greg,

Thank you for the information, I understand your point. 
I will try to update the code and proceed accordingly.

Thanks and Regards,

It seems pretty clear that to do what you want, someone will have to
adapt the code to use a different library.  I hope the people that
imposed the requirement (which I can't even speculate if it is right or
wrong, as you have purposefully omitted details) have provided funding
for the implementaiton cost!

I think the only big question is that if you modify the code, if you
make the modifications in clean manner that allows build-time selection
of which TLS implementation, and if you publish your modifications, then
will people want to integrate that into the project?
