The Shorewall firewall developer, Mr Tom Eastep is finally calling it quits, and the next release will be his final one. Retiring in his mid 70s after years of developing this awesome software is something most of us would humbly understand and appreciate after years of dedication.
It appears that he was the sole developer of the Shorewall, and I wonder if the community will take over the project and continue with his great work.
How will Nethserver prepare for the transition ? What firewall alternatives could be considered ?
