Migration of OpenSSL from dist-git to src-git in Fedora

While working on FIPS 140-3 compliance, we have often experienced the shortcomings of our dist-git-based development process for the Fedora, CentOS Stream and RHEL OpenSSL packages. Rebasing to a newer upstream version in the presence of many downstream patches often requires adjusting the patches, while a git rebase in src-git could have automatically solved the conflict, or at least simplified the rebase. Since development of new patches across multiple supported versions in Fedora and RHEL proved to be cumbersome, we developed them only for RHEL. This meant that we lost Fedora as our upstream and its associated test coverage. In fact, many of our patches are cherry-picks from upstream. Cherry-picking would be significantly easier with src-git based workflow. The goal of this talk is to address these shortcomings in dist-git by migrating to src-git using packit. We will consider OpenSSL as an example and demonstrate how the migration works.
