Just a short heads-up to all users testing and developing for OpenSSL 3.0:

The defaults for the configuration options 'fips' and 'makepend' are going to change on the master branch soon
(i.e., before the release of 3.0.0 alpha16): they will be disabled by default.

If your developer workflow or your continuous integration relies on one of those options, now it's a good time
to enable them explicitly by adding 'enable-fips' resp. 'enable-makedepend' to your configure arguments.
