Escalating here an issue that seems that it should be tagged as blocker.

Currently the latest version of openssl-1.1.0c breaks Python's test suite.

The problematic commit was identified [0] and reverted [1] at openssl's upstream, however when running the test suite on a Fedora Rawhide machine, which includes the fix, the tests currently hang (not just failing like before).

The issue, with some more details, is tracked here: https://bugs.python.org/issue28689
