I know that many of us in this list will be ready to get our hands into the OpenVPN and help to develop this wonderful software that had helped us many a lot. Instead of "urging: the developers, I think that all the users must support them. Remember that this is OS Software.

Hi Brian,
the archive matter seems to be something different, I know nothing about that.

But there is quite some traffic on openvpn-users, thus there is definitely an
high interest in the software.

However, James answered (I guess last week?) to some similar mails, and
explained the matter in the thread "Openvpn 2.1?" on openvpn-users.
The only thing the developers seem to wait for is the vista-support, but there
are also some mails around from people who are usign 2.1 rc4 and are very
content with its stability.

Perhaps contribution to the development is needed?

I'm no programmer, sorry. :-)
