Typographical inconsistency in easy-rsa

Reported by: cvillepete Owned by: Eric Crist
Priority: trivial Milestone:
Component: easy-rsa Version: easyrsa-2.x
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords:


In the ./vars file, there is the following line:


When you run ./build-ca, it asks for:

State or Province Name (full name) [CA]:

You probably want the /vars file to say KEY_PROVINCE

Provence |prōˈväns|

province |ˈprävins|

I'm not sure we want to fix this inside OpenVPN (since easy-rsa has moved out in 2.3 already) - but you guys might want to fix it in easy-rsa 3.0.

Over to ecrist :-)

This is already correct in v3:

stateOrProvinceName_default     = $ENV::EASYRSA_REQ_PROVINCE

Fixing this in the legacy v2 codebase is likely unwise, as it's a breaking change for anyone relying on the incorrectly spelled env-var; given the trivial nature of the flaw, this seems to make the best course of action to do nothing.
