[Slackbuilds-users] Easy-rsa package (from OpenVPN) on SBo

OpenVPN used to include scripts to manage certificate authorities, keys
and certificates. These were bundled under the easy-rsa scripts, in
/usr/share/docs/openvpn/easy-rsa - if I remember correctly, in Slackware.
At some point in time, the OpenVPN maintainers decided to spin them off
separately (https://github.com/OpenVPN/easy-rsa) - and from that moment
on, they disappeared from Slackware. As this is only (relatively) easy
way I'm aware of generating a CA for Openvpn, together with
corresponding server and client certificates and keys, I've asked
several times on LQ if they could be included back in Slackware -
I'm thinking of making an easy-rsa package for SBo, to make it easy to
add them back to Slackware. What do people think? Good idea, bad idea?
Maybe they are redundant and there are other tools in place already
doing this job?
