@tedu any idea why OpenBSD didn't switch to the ref10 implementation of Ed25519? It's supposed to be an order of magnitude faster.

@mike I imagine if it was maintainable (readable, tractable codebase with receptive-to-patches upstream), secure, permissively licensed *and* faster it might have been utilized instead. @tedu


@aag @tedu What patches are you going to send against a reference implementation by the authors of the algorithm? Everything that you said about ref10 applies to the current code (as it's also done by the same people).
