+A "wish list" of changes we'd like to make to the FIPS module if we could.
+Note the CMVP requires retesting of all previously tested platforms
+("Operational Environments") to implement any changes considered "cryptographically
+significant". Since the OpenSSL FIPS module v2.0 has some 250 such formally
+tested platforms (and counting), retesting just isn't logistically or economically
+From 2017-08-14, Fix GCM MAC computation for AES-GCM by	srahul123
+cryptographically significant, not fixable
+Andy Polyakov: harmonize with __thumb__ clause in FIPS_ref_point() (#3354),
+May be possible to introduce in future change letter
+cryptographically significant, not fixable
+cryptographically significant, not fixable
+"Lucky 13", CVE-2013-0169
+cryptographically significant, not fixable
