If you check the source RPM's spec file, you'll see that most (if not
all) of the "j" patches have been backported to the "g" version. The
trick is that the "j" version bumps the .so for /lib[64]/
and /lib[64]/ from ".7" to ".8" and a lot of existing code
would break because they want .7. Hope that explains it for you.

Rick, thank for Your response.
But - yes, I know just was released F10 openssl pkg 0.9.8g release 12,
and I read it's changelog, thus I know what was backported to this.

But I'm not agree about You these "lot of existing code would break
 because ..", as when I ask:

rpm -q --whatrequires openssl


(and I have relative large system with packages from rpmfusion, dries,
atrpms, planetccrma and others) - thus, I think, only packages
depend on openssl are some little from Fedora own repository.
I'm right?
