Bug Description

Since OpenSSL is linked into galera, following would be needed:

a) A copy of openssl license like in vio/docs/COPYING.openssl.

b) GPL linking exception as described here https://people.gnome.org/~markmc/openssl-and-the-gpl.html

"""

 * In addition, as a special exception, the copyright holders give
 * permission to link the code of portions of this program with the
 * OpenSSL library under certain conditions as described in each
 * individual source file, and distribute linked combinations
 * including the two.
 * You must obey the GNU General Public License in all respects
 * for all of the code used other than OpenSSL. If you modify
 * file(s) with this exception, you may extend this exception to your
 * version of the file(s), but you are not obligated to do so. If you
 * do not wish to do so, delete this exception statement from your
 * version. If you delete this exception statement from all source
 * files in the program, then also delete it here.

Hello

I'm working on packaging PXC for Debian and Ubuntu and this issue will currently block entry of these packages to the archive.

If this exception could be granted that would be most helpful!

Percona now uses JIRA for bug reports so this bug report is migrated to: https://jira.percona.com/browse/PXC-1545
