MySQL and OpenSSL Replication what a mess!

Just a heads up, if you do decide to enable OpenSSL so you can do encrypted MySQL replication. There are two bugs that will affect replication and the mysqldump command. They're as follows: Bug #24148 regression tests hang with SSL enabled http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=24148 http://lists.mysql.com/commits/17286 Bug #27669 mysqldump: Got error: 2026: SSL connection error when trying to connect http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=27669 http://lists.mysql.com/commits/24329 This may cause lots of problems with MySQL and SSL Replication using OpenSSL.
