Re: Patch to add "chacha20" option to OpenSSL package

No worries, I wasn't sure what the feeling would be on that. I had hoped you might be OK with it as a non-default build option, but understand where you're coming from and fully respect the decision.

And agree that an OpenSSL 1.1 package would be a great way to go! If no one else gets to it first and I manage to get a few free hours in the next couple of months, I might have a go at a wip version! :-P

Hi, Timshel.

Normally that would be welcome with open arms, but openssl is
a security-sensitive package, and I imagine others would also
agree that we should avoid deviating from upstream code for that

We should provide OpenSSL 1.1, though! That'd also provide those

Sorry, and thanks for the effort.
