LibreSSL to replace OpenSSL?

A moderator closed a thread about this and suggested starting one in this forum, so I thought I would take the initiative because I'm interested smile

Who thinks it would be beneficial for Arch to switch to - or at least official support - LibreSSL? OpenBSD folks wrote it, so that lends credence... And Arch already uses OpenNTPD and OpenSSH - so why not LibreSSL?

Re: LibreSSL to replace OpenSSL?

Wouldn't this cause compatibility issues on Arch? Lets say for steam itself like Steam's proton. If there isn't a compatibility issue and all of those issues are sorted out then I'm not fuzzed about it if it won't cause major changes to the way the system works.

Alpine Linux did try that for a time and chose to go back to OpenSSL
