The Alpine Linux project has announced the distribution's developers are replacing the popular OpenSSL security library with the OpenBSD-backed LibreSSL library. This will result in many software packages being rebuilt and linked against the new LibreSSL code. "We decided to replace OpenSSL with LibreSSL because we believe it is a better library. While OpenSSL is trying to fix the broken code,
LibreSSL has simply removed it. As a result (almost) everything linked to OpenSSL has been rebuilt." Further discussion on this topic can be found on the Alpine developer mailing list.
