Any chance op doing some major steps (11.2, 11.2, not just 11.3) for
openssl?

No chance...

afaicr it was not so long ago that the path for moving to the "K"
version was distributed here. But when looking at the openssl site i
noticed:

25-feb: OpenSSL 0.9.8m is now available, including important bug and
security fixes

Is in factory already.

24-mar: OpenSSL 0.9.8n is now available, including important bug and
security fixes

29-mar: OpenSSL 1.0.0 is now available, a major release

Hopefully in 11.3.

I might say that openssl is just as important as packages like apache,
which _is_ up-to-date. Specially as it concerns security, and other
packages like vpn, stunnel, asterisk are build upon openssl, one might
give it a higher priority, not?

We backport security fixes to the old openssl versions, so there is no
need for a version upgrade. The fixes for the last issues got released
last week btw.

Ciao, Marcus
