[openssl-users] Can you suggest any technical name for changing sources from openssl-1.0.2 to openssl-1.1.0?

The OPENSSL_VERSION_NUMBER macro dates back to some of the earliest
OpenSSL releases, and is therefore always defined. Postfix has the
following comment in src/tls/tls_misc.c which covers the relevant
* OPENSSL_VERSION_NUMBER is a numeric release version identifier:
* MMNNFFPPS: major minor fix patch status
* The status nibble has one of the values 0 for development, 1 to e for
* betas 1 to 14, and f for release. Parsed OpenSSL version number. for
* 0x000906000 == 0.9.6 dev 0x000906023 == 0.9.6b beta 3 0x00090605f ==
* 0.9.6e release
* Versions prior to 0.9.3 have identifiers < 0x0930. Versions between
* 0.9.3 and 0.9.5 had a version identifier with this interpretation:
* MMNNFFRBB major minor fix final beta/patch
* for example
* 0x000904100 == 0.9.4 release 0x000905000 == 0.9.5 dev
* Version 0.9.5a had an interim interpretation that is like the current
* one, except the patch level got the highest bit set, to keep continu-
* ity. The number was therefore 0x0090581f.
