As well as normal reviews, responding to user queries, wiki user
requests, OMC business, handling security reports, etc., key activities
this month:

- Spent the week starting 3rd September attending the OpenSSL FIPS
summit in Brisbane. Working on the OpenSSL strategy for FIPS and the
design of the new module.
- Clarified the documentation for the return values of SSL_client_version()
- Fixed the handling of session tickets following a resumption with an
external PSK, i.e. we treat it like a resumption and send one ticket
back to the client

only write/servers that only read to avoid EPIPE while sending the new
session tickets
