Short description

We should look into it and find out what is the current recommend way: In member function ‘virtual void GOSTDNSCryptoKeyEngine::fromPublicKeyString(const string&)’: warning: ‘const Botan::CurveGFp& Botan::EC_Group::get_curve() const’ is deprecated: Avoid CurveGFp [-Wdeprecated-declarations]
   PointGFp point(params.get_curve(), x,y);
In file included from /usr/include/botan-2/botan/ecc_key.h:13:0,
                 from /usr/include/botan-2/botan/gost_3410.h:13,
/usr/include/botan-2/botan/ec_group.h:127:58: note: declared here
       BOTAN_DEPRECATED("Avoid CurveGFp") const CurveGFp& get_curve() const;

Deprecated in this commit: randombit/botan@e5b9ee2

The current documentation states:

There should not be any reason for applications to use this type. If you need EC primitives use the interfaces EC_Group and PointGFp
It is likely this class will be removed entirely in a future major release.
