Except, of course, it appears that someone completely forgot to contact
the people who maintain those applications. That's not how it's
supposed to work. Given that it's only three applications, that should
have been pretty easy. The point is that it's not OK to think "we're
only screwing three maintainers; it's OK to do this without actually
talking to them."
My upstream (zoneminder) explicitly removed openssl support because of
the licensing issues. It can still be made to work, but of course that
violates their license and I can't imagine that at this point they're
going to just change their license to allow us to ship the software. Of
course I'll try, but in the meantime I certainly can't actually build
the software in Fedora.
