Where "development process" means development of OpenSSL itself, not
software dependent on OpenSSL.  Since openssl is primarily a developer
toolkit, not end-user software, the openssl-users list is really for
developers, just not developers of OpenSSL itself.

Well, but we now have "openssl-project" for discussions of the
ongoing development of OpenSSL.  It is mostly for team members,
but though it is moderated, IIRC others can join and post.

Well, I've been on both for a long time, and mostly find that
I wish the openssl-dev posts were on openssl-users instead,
they really mostly aren't about ongoing OpenSSL development.
