Hi all,

I  have  written the patch that supports working with https(SSL) for libxml
(look attach). By applying the patch https support is included by default.

After patch applying execute:
$ autoconf
$ autoheader
$ ./configure [OPTION]... [VAR=VALUE]...

  Hum, that's not the first time such support is suggested see the
previous threads about this:

(easy to find when searching for 'https' in search engine)

  Currently the status quo is the following:
   - support for new protocols can be implemented on top of the
     existing I/O API by registering your own functions
   - I would prefer not to add a dependancy to libxml2 directly
     (especially for a crypto library :-)

that's basically what I stated when Mark Vadoc proposed his implementation
last year (BTW his code seems to work both on Windows crypto and OpenSSL
if I remember correctly). 
Now if there general agreement that the support should be added in libxml2
source, I would not block the consensus (but I may keep it configured off
by default at least in my builds). In that case I assume Mark have been
maintaining and running his own patch for a bit more than a year and that
one might be a good candidate for integration.

  Do we want to reopen this issue ?
