I commented:

        Therefore, a good start seems to try to build all the 16
        packages depending on openssl <at> 1.0 with openssl <at> 1.1.
        And mark them with a comment if they fail.  But I guess that
        openssl <at> 1.0 is a strong requirement for these 16 packages.

and tried for a couple of these 16 and they failed to build.  And since:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ guix refresh -l openssl@1.0
Building the following 2277 packages would ensure 2400 dependent
packages are rebuilt
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

which is worse than on Feb. 25th, 2021 («1930 packages would ensure 2048
dependent»), I guess we are not taking the good path to remove it soon.

I have never looked into this.  If you think it is possible to remove
it, let’s dot it. :-)

The follow-up of this message from 2019 is:


and Maxim provided the “process” (if that can be named a “process” :-))
as a reply here:


BTW, the package Python 3 python-enum34 is broken since maybe ever


and only used for the Python 2 variant python2-enum34, which cannot be
removed yet (198 packages would ensure 386 dependent packages).
