AFAIK dropbox used some lgpl libraries, and now we add openssl >stuff? Did anyone checked, if that's okay license wise? LGPL + OpenSSL should be fine. It's GPL + OpenSSL that is a problem, since GPL required the combined work be available under the terms of the GPL and those are incompatible with one or two clauses in the OpenSSL license. LGPL makes fewer requirements on the programs that link with it with can be satisfied at the same time as the OpenSSL license. Basically, you have to take the minimum steps to allow your software to be linked against a compatible version of the LGPL code.
