I support FSF's concern regarding patent-encumbered standard
proposal on TLS auth extensions laid out here:
Being a programmer, systems administrator and free software supporter
over the years, I don't think yielding to software patent-mining
efforts is going to do us all anything good, even if these aren't
currently recognized in my country.
Thanks for years of faithful work, hope you will manage to hold
it to the same high standard.
