  1. OpenVPN 2.4 - next steps?
  2. Decommissioning openvpn-testing.git (proposal from dazo)
    • The testing git repo have not served the purpose it was designed for in a long time, due to the development model have changed dramatically
    • The official openvpn.git repositories users can fetch our git trees from are on gitlab, github and, and they should always be in sync
    • openvpn-testing.git is currently only hosted on, and should be removed.
      • Those branches which are only to be found in this repository carries no value any more - most branches have been long gone merged into master and release/2.x branches.
      • Exceptions of not merged branches
        • feat_passtos (based on v2.2_beta) and need to be reworked to be relevant again. Considering the interest for this feature has been mostly lacking, dazo does not consider this important enough to keep around.
        • feat_vlan_tagging (builds on feat_passtos) which also needs massive rework. This feature have received a few more requests over the years on the ML, but no-one have taken responsibility to care or push for this feature. This patch-set consists of 16 patches, which in addition needs thorough review. Considering the lack of ownership to these patches and someone really pushing for this to become a reality, plus that it needs a considerable rebase work, dazo is of the opinion to also drop this one. If someone is willing to take ownership to this patch-set and we have people willing to review it - it can be prepared in an external git repository before being sent for final review on the mailing list.
    • Decommissioning openvpn-testing.git will happen in early January, where the last push to this git tree will be the final OpenVPN v2.4.0 release.

  1. Copyright updates
    • dazo proposes to run the script on master, release/2.3 and release/2.4 branches, updating the copyright year to 2017.
    • This should be run before the v2.4.0 release goes out.
