more or less a year ago Kurt Roeckx provided an initial port towards the
OpenSSL 1.1 API . The patch has been left untouched  and it has
been complained about a missing compat layer of the new vs the old API
within the OpenSSL library .
This is how I reconstructed the situation as of today and I am not
aware of any progress in regard to the newer library within the OpenSSH
project. Did I miss any significant development?
In the `meantime', OpenSSL provides a kind of compat layer  which
(they suggested) should be included in the downstream projects .
Is this enough / acceptable? What would the project like to see? I know
that OpenBSD itself is more focused on the LibreSSL library but I would
like to avoid that every one carries (and maintains) a big patch around.
 I know that Fedora ships it.
