            Bug ID: 180780
           Summary: [WPE] WebCrypto should be a public option.
           Product: WebKit
           Version: WebKit Local Build
          Hardware: Unspecified
                OS: Unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit WPE
          Assignee: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org

On bug 179009 the WebCrypto has been turned into a private option.
On top of that the dependency on libtasn1 and gcrypt > 1.6.0 has been forced even if one doesn't enable web_crypto by default.

I think this is wrong.
ENABLE_WEB_CRYPTO should remain a public option for WPE (at least as long as it is also public one on the GTK port).
Also, when this option is disabled the build dependencies on libtasn1 or gcrypt > 1.6.0 is not needed.

Making our build dependencies soft, makes easier to build WPE en embedded systems.
Please don't raise them more than strictly needed.

Also having public options allows external developers building systems to disable feature without having to dive into our cmake code.
Disabling features when don't needed allows for a lower footprint.
Let's try to keep public the options that make sense.
