Thanks for the help, everyone! The Qualys SSL Labs tool was invaluable. Apparently using "-SSLv3" in the SSLCipherSuite setting in Apache also disables TLSv1.0 and TLSv1.2, breaking most clients. Not very intuitive, but I got it sorted out so that I'm supporting only TLSv1.0 through TLSv1.2, which works in all modern browsers. Thankfully I only changed these settings like five days ago, so it hasn't been broken very long.

Back to the discussion at hand :-)...

One of my helpful Twitter friends pointed out the email I was referring to regarding a sponsor:


So David says he thinks he can find someone at RedHat to sponsor this, assuming it looks good.
