I guess then people who want openssl3 can: - do test builds - file bugs with upstreams that do have a formal release that supports openssl3 - otherwise, figure out patches to make the most recent formal release work, file them upstream, and add to pkgsrc along with upstream URLs. Particularly when pkgsrc is tilting against upstream conflicts (openssl changes API and other upstreams don't feel the need to publish a release that works with the new API), I would like us to follow the "file upstream and include URL" rule. We are accumulating a lot of patches that we shouldn't have to carry. That's not about openssl, but I suspect making openssl3 work before the opensource world generally makes it work is a bit of pushing wet noodles uphill.
