I did that deliberately.  the -devel package is supposed to pull in
the base package as well, which in turn requires the correct versioned
libopenssl* package.  This way the -devel tools also pull in the user
tools and man pages, and there's only the openssl package's setup.hint
which has to be changed if the version number of the lib changes.

Yes, sure.  Wasn't the idea of the change to get versioned runtime libs?

I'm going to upload this new package now.

Then we have to change all dependencies throughout the release area from
"openssl" to "libopenssl098" and inform the maintainers.
