I wanted to say a big thanks to you and your team for the forward-
thinking to follow our release announcements. It is great to hear from
our vendors with concerns at the start of our release candidate process
(rather than, as so often happens, a year or so after the release).

Sadly no, the GnuTLS API is not at all like the OpenSSL one and so
while both cryptographic APIs they can't be substituted for each other.
We require GnuTLS specifically.

Peter's reply looks good in this regard, so I would go with those
Thanks for reaching out!
