[Interest] android and openSSL, google-store is complaining

Thanks for your reply 

We do use SSL in a not-so-important feature of our app (meaning we can
probably just remove that feature for the Android app and we won't be
using SSL anymore, end of problem). 

I see from the documentation that qt is built against openSLL, but I
didn't really understand if it's bundled in it or if it relies on some
libs existing on the device (or in the sdk?). 

The thing is that SSL on Android is working but I didn't do anything
special for that, as far as I can remember and check, so I don't know
what to do to get the latest openSSL versions, or even if I have any
control on that.

Beginning July 11, 2016, Google Play will block publishing of any new apps or updates that use older versions of OpenSSL. If you're using a 3rd party library that bundles OpenSSL, you'll need to upgrade it to a version that bundles OpenSSL 1.02f/1.01r or higher.
