[Interest] Qt 5.9 and OpenSSL 1.1?

Let's create (if not yet created) and link the QTBUG JIRA tasks for Qt 5.9 and Qt 5.12 to the mailing list. Continue discussion there. Easier than mailing list for this type of a task.

In principle switch to new version should be well justified. We just need to check the practicalities.

We already have OpenSSL in use by the installer, but it is not currently a shipped 3rd party module of Qt. As long as it is not enabled by default for Qt apps, we could add it like we typically do for 3rd party items.

    We will check this. I know there is already work ongoing to switch that in dev (https://codereview.qt-project.org/#/c/244362/)
