Comment (by Balling):

 So what, openssl? Seriosly?

 Right, "The Fraunhofer FDK AAC and OpenSSL libraries are under licenses
 which are incompatible with the GPLv2 and v3. To the best of our
 knowledge, they are compatible with the LGPL."

 WTF, lol, what a joke. openssl is cryptolibrary, I do not think that any
 copyright applies there, SERIOSULY? They cannot say it is their software
 when so many stuff depends on openssl, of (inter)national security. That
 is lost case immediatelly. Even ffmpeg can try to argue that, but

 Also, openssl is now relicenced to GPL 3.0 in 3.0 version.
