I'm sorry, if this questions already was answered:
Does making base openssl private for base system components mean it
will include only headers/libs (in future?)?
I mean no binaries or any kind of other resources like examples/docs?
I think keeping them in base will be a bit weird in such case.
Also if base openssl becomes private do we need Kerberos in base?
