openvpn 2.5 is moving to oldstable in upstream. Is there a rough timeline on adding 2.6 to Viscosity?

(This is not about DCO, it's about wanting to solidify my configs on the more modern syntax)

Hi ratness,

We plan on making the jump to OpenVPN 2.6 with the switch to OpenSSL 3. Thus far we've been holding off as long as we can as OpenSSL 3 breaks a lot of existing OpenVPN setups (with the deprecation or the removal of many older digests, ciphers, and TLS versions). However with the 1.1.1 branch of OpenSSL reaching end-of-life soon, this isn't far off.
