That means some of the dates in the wikipedia article are wrong... but not the 
EOL date :)
And interesting that I apparently missed 2 releases, my version monitor mustn't

"May want" as in the future, not "doesn't want" now.

Indeed! Are they all labelled OpenSSL, or should I rather look at the log for 
the network/ssl folder hope I catch everything?
Are all fixes in 5.10 and thus in the 5.10 branch?
