Rep: Reputation: Disabled (gmail) and openssl (1.1.1e) EOF error

running for gmail authentication results in the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./", line 347, in <module>
  File "./", line 326, in main
  File "./", line 214, in AuthorizeTokens
    response = urllib.urlopen(request_url, urllib.urlencode(params)).read()
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/", line 355, in read
    data = self._sock.recv(rbufsize)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/", line 754, in recv
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/", line 641, in read
    v =
ssl.SSLError: [SSL: KRB5_S_TKT_NYV] unexpected eof while reading (_ssl.c:1946)
It seems likely related to this: When set to authenticate using XOauth, Getmail now fails to fetch email. This started happening right after the Openssl 1.1.1.e upgrade.

..and, as a result, this: The revert of EOF detection change in libssl for 1.1.1

I'm not a programmer, so making sense of the various conversations is spotty at best. Am I out of luck until a new release of openssl (assuming I'm on the right track with the above issues)? From looking at the GitHub releases, there appears to be ~3 months between and 1.1.1e was ~10 days ago.

Is there an easier fix (or perhaps an alternative) I'm overlooking?

...and just like that openssl-1.1.1f is released (on current) and the issue goes away (for those that may see this issue down the road).

Perhaps I just need patience.
