Do you have some trademark on the function name "match_hostname"? Did you not
understand my other postings to the list?

Let me spell it out for you once again. The base for my patch using OpenSSL,
is the Postfix TLS patch by Lutz Jänicke that you can download at
http://www.aet.tu-cottbus.de/personen/jaenicke/postfix_tls/

In that patch there is a function called match_hostname. Go check for
yourself. Go read that patch, and then compare. I re-implemented that
functionality of wild card matching. There are functions for that in apr.

I really don't understand your attitude. Are you mad because I did not use
Neon?
