 Ah, but what about people who parachute into the thread, making dispassionate
 arguments from the sidelines, while offering no help at all?

Feature #9439: Remove OpenSSL from stdlib
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/9439#change-44576

* Author: Zachary Scott
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Category: lib
* Target version: current: 2.2.0
----------------------------------------
Regarding [ruby-core:59943], I agree with nobu that we should remove OpenSSL from ruby.

It's become too hard to maintain, and would better serve our users to encourage the use of a different implementation.

Another benefit of removing OpenSSL is the impact backport fixes have on the release management team.

Although I haven't yet determined the extent of work required to remove it (ie: tooling, tests, etc). We can discuss them here.
