Not even a little feedback ?

>     pkgutil -t http://buildfarm.opencsw.org/opencsw/experimental/yann -i
> openssl_utils libssl_dev libssl1_0_0

> installed alongside libssl 1.0.
>     Starting with libssl 1.0, the SSL engines directory has been moved in
> a versioned directory so we don't have filenames clash.
>     However, within a month or two, I will start to fill bug against
> packages linked with libssl 0.9.8 to ask for a rebuild with libssl 1.0.
>   - libssl relies on system-wide hash symbolic links located in
> /etc/opt/csw/ssl/certs to verify certificates (provided by the
> ca_certificates packages under OpenCSW).
>  Unfortunately, the hash system has changed between 0.9.8 and 1.0, the
> ca_certificates package and the c_rehash script (used to generate the
> symlinks) have been
>  modified to always generate the old and the new hash symlinks. There is
> clash risk but it should be low.
>  - I don't plan on updating the openssl package so that it depends on
> libssl 1.0. This package is a legacy of a time where there was a unique
> package containing libraries, development files and the openssl tools. Packages
> should no longer depend on this package and I prefer to drop it the day we
> will remove libssl 0.9.8 from the repository.
> Thanks in advance for any comment and feedback,
