Hello dear community, dear Python developers!
Would this be a reasonable and appealing project? A MVC (backend, frontend) of OPNsense (opnsense.org) -> to proof
the security of Python (3. Gen)? The OPNsense backend was recently
rewritten in Python already.
Manuel Kasper wrote a PHP GUI/backend around pf Packetfilter with m0n0wall, pfSense forked and did stick to PHP, now the new 02-2015 fork OPNsense did the same.
Alan Jude from BSD-Now suggested indirectly - why not to rewrite it in Python. Because of architecture and security reasons, I guess. Maybe it is an opportunity right now?
What do you think? - Cheers, Chol.
