None of my group can make Europython, but we're certainly willing to 
help in anyway we can from California. We've been really frustrated 
with the lack of a standard, full-featured, robust set of OpenSSL 
wrappers. To enable session resumption support in Twisted we 
contributed patches back to PyOpenSSL but no one seems to be 
maintaining the code any longer. At least none of our mail has been 
responded to.

  I'd love to see one package emerge as the standard Python OpenSSL 
interface. Getting M2Crypto up to speed seems like a good place to 
start. I'm willing to help get a good task list together to help 
organize what needs done, or anything else that might help move this
