Looking at the next release of openssl (1.1.x) and the deprecation of SSL2/SSL3/MD2 I want to throw in the following question.
Are there any plans to adjust the default OPTIONS for security/openssl before / during the phase it will become the default for ports?

It would be a good time to adjust the OPTIONS because the next release don't support them any longer
