After the latest openssl updates, the AUR packages for createrepo and repoview
are failing. I know it must be the result of the openssl changes. My question
is, "in situations like this do I just try rebuilding the AUR packages, or does
the maintainer have to make updates to accommodate the changes?"

The errors received are:

    Checking for presence of sqlite metadata in /home/backup/rpms/factory_11.0

        sqlite metadata tables found --> updating

Update of metadata (sqlite) --> Failed

    Signing the repository after update...  OK

    Updating/Creating repoview index and HTML pages...

of which:

"ImportError: libssl.so.0.9.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or

seems to be the primary error. I am not familiar enough with openssl to know if
this can be cured by a simple rebuild, a symlink, or whether the openssl changes
were significant enough to require a reworking of the AUR package by the
maintainer. What say the gurus?
