Ubuntu 12.04 LTS provides OpenSSL 1.0.1e, but it disables TLSv1.1 and TLSv1.2. In the past it was an interop decision because of broken client implementations. In 2014, its really not appropriate since the clients have had time to fix their broken-ness. Any remaining broken clients are penalizing the majority of complying clients.
I want to provide the same version of OpenSSL 1.0.1e, but I want to provide the [currently] disabled protocols. I know I can create a Personal Package Archive (PPA), but its not clear to me if I can use it to override a Ubuntu base package.
(I also realize statically linked clients will not benefit from the improved packaging).
How does one provide an override to a specific package in Ubuntu?
