[egenix-users] egenix-pyopenssl and OpenSSL 1.0.2

as you may have heard, OpenSSL has started a new version 1.0.2
We will eventually switch egenix-pyopenssl to this new version,
but after the investigation we did following a user request,
this won't happen for first 1.0.2 release.
There are two problems with this release.
One is related to pyOpenSSL defining a function which OpenSSL
now provides itself, causing a conflict between the two:
X509_REVOKED_dup(). This is easy to fix in pyOpenSSL by renaming
The second one is more severe. There's a bug in OpenSSL 1.0.2
which causes pyOpenSSL's cert.has_expired() to return the exact
opposite of what it should return, rendering the method
It reports certificates as expired which are not and accepts
certificates which are expired.
So we'll skip 1.0.2 and wait for at least another OpenSSL
release before switching.
