Are you interested in details?

I have a working version of openvpn, but it requires heavy patching. I will
wait for version 2.4.1 which has a lot of preparation (and with some luck is
ported completly). Will push an openssl rebuild then.
If anybody is interested... Raise your hands and let me know, I can provide
packages for testing.

Mariadb is still unsolved. There is a ticket in upstream jira [0] but it does
not carry anything useful. There's a reference for a review, but I could not
find the patch in mail archive. Will try to contact the developers and
express our interest...

Mupdf is a burden to maintain due to build system, bundled libraries and
static linking. Looks like upstream is not yet interested in openssl 1.1.0...
As I do not use it currently this will move to [community] if no one
steps up.
