Summary0004605: Use LibreSSL for Windows builds?
DescriptionLook into using LibreSSL for Windows builds. This so UnrealIRCd is (hopefully) less affected by security issues.

Of the last 10 or so security issues in OpenSSL only 1 affected us (with impact low). But it isn't always like that: we have had in the past that two high security issues affected us & triggered a release within a period of months. Would like that situation to happen less, of course :)

Additional InformationThis bug item is for both researching the possibility/feasibility and (possible) implementation.
TagsNo tags attached.

This is now working, as of current git & future 4.0.3 we will assume LibreSSL.

I'm now also building with Visual Studio 2012 / the 7.1A SDK, but that's another thing...
