  Nettle is a cryptographic library that is designed to fit easily in more
  or less any context: In crypto toolkits for object-oriented languages
  (C++, Python, Pike, ...), in applications like LSH or GNUPG, or even in
  kernel space.

  The public git repository for Nettle is located at <a
  href='http://git.lysator.liu.se/nettle'>git.lysator.liu.se</a>.
  After checkout, you need to run the <tt>.bootstrap</tt> script
  before the standard <tt>./configure &amp;&amp; make</tt>.

  Earlier, Nettle was version controlled as part of the LSH
  repository. When converted to the current repository, the history of
  all files has been maintained as far as practical. But since the
  directory organization used to be a bit different, building old
  versions of Nettle from the current git repository does not work out
  of the box. To do that, you have to check out historic versions from
  the <a href='http://git.lysator.liu.se/lsh'>LSH repository</a>
  instead.
