Expect this to happen time to time with releases. Since we no longer
have a 'package freeze', issues like this will be encountered.
I would say that by the end of this week (the 16th), you will be safe to
make a final snapshot. The purpose of this testing week was to identify
things like the openssl problem ;)
I know this may be frustrating, but hang in there. As far as I know,
openssl and baselayout are the only system packages that are going to be
bumped, and they should both be bumped by Friday (brad willing :) ).
