+1 for OpenSSL 1.1.1 from the maintainer of the ssl module. The new
version also introduces TLS 1.3 support. Linux distributions have been
switching to OpenSSL 1.1.1 for a while. If it's good enough for RHEL 8,
then it's good enough for us, too.
Do you want to update Python 3.8 (master) only or also 3.7? I'm not
strictly against updating 3.7. However we have traditionally kept the
OpenSSL version of each branch stable. 1.1.1 comes with new features,
stricter security settings and some ciphers removed.
