Subject Re: The drive for 2.4.26

APR 1.6 is needed for apr_crypto_openssl, obviously.

ABS: Not sure. When I originally tried building w/ APR 1.5 it didn't 
work, but it didn't work with OpenSSL 1.1 and APR 1.6 either. That has 
now been fixed by Rainer. Have not tried 1.5/1.1.0 w/ abs yet so I 
simply don't know. Feel free to try it. I have no time today to do it. assumes 1.6 is needed due to those first attempts and may be 
inaccurate. It's easy to just remove the xml.mak regex for 1.6 that's 
part of -ossl11 (&toossl1), there is a separate -apr16 option 
for just the one change in APR (xml.mak's location). Maybe I should 
remove the part concerning APR 1.6 from the -ossl11 option.

Once APR 1.6 is released my plan is to make the change permanent next 
2.4.x then making the need for that conversion unneeded.

Openssl 1.0.2 is good till sometime in 2019, even 1.1.0 eol's before it 
does so we're stuck w/ modifying the dsp files one way or 

Anyone with commit access for apr can remove the part to modify for 1.6 
that is included in -ossl110 (sub toossl1) if 1.6 really isn't 
needed for ABS.

Have a family member in the hospital who had surgery yesterday so this 
is my first time to even check mail since Wednesday morning. I have to 
go back to the hospital shortly.
