openssl 3 and deprecation

Billy Brumley
Howdy Folks,

I checked https://www.openssl.org/policies/releasestrat.html but did
not manage to find an answer.

At what stages is marking a function deprecated still allowed? Only
before beta? Or at all stages? Or is it case-by-case with potential
OMC vote?

Thanks

BBB

Hi Billy

We allow API changes until Beta 1 (but ideally we would prefer API
changes to have appeared in at least one alpha). Deprecation counts as
an API change.
