Had a conversation with aoz in the hardened IRC room yesterday, discussing how non-tech types such as I might help the hardened effort;
STM that Gentoo newbies and others simply checking Gentoo Hardened out first, go first to http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/hardened/. So that would be an ideal place to put a link(s) to a white paper summary of where the project is, and what its next step is.
That white paper could be easily updated by a newbie, helping with the proof reading!?
3. IIUC, the current status is to wait for "upstream" (the gcc folks?) to successfully incorporate ssp into c++ compilations? And also that with rare exception, little is loss using the older 3.4.6 compiler? In those rare cases, gcc can be "slotted" so that 3.4.6 would be the default, but 4.x could be called to duty when 3.4.6 won't work?
Might be useful to note this in the white paper. -- firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list
