I would like to have it more prominent. I mean, yes, there should
probably be a known issues page, but I think that whatever we do, we
should have a line close to the one liking to the 1.1.0h tarball. Why
send people chasing for it on other pages?
Also, some people are watching the source archive (https://ftp.openssl.org/)
directly, so the more I think about it, the more it makes sense to me
to place a patch there. openssl-1.1.0h-errata.patch ? That could
easily be linked into the list of downloadable things in
https://www.openssl.org/downloads/ with just a small tweak of the
script we use to generate that list.
