a follow up:
* Retiring OpenSSL 1.0 will take place here:
https://archlinux.org/todo/openssl-10-retirement/ This wont affect the
1.1 -> 3.0 transition though.
* I have placed an openssl-1.1 package into [staging] that should make
it easier to migrate as it provides the 1.1 version of libcrypto.so
* The idea was to have openssl-3.0 depend on that at first to make the
transition more seamless. I still need to solve the bootstrap issue
As this is going to be a massive rebuild we should plan a time frame
when to do this and avoid any other rebuilds. ATM there are more than
700 packages in our staging repos.
