[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 - 
without success.

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?
