I do not see it this black/white way. 

We have found no regression with any SSL != OpenSSL 1.1.1. 
We have not even found a bug with TLSv1.3 as such. What we have found is a behaviour change in OpenSSL where our code relied on either changed or not well documented behaviour. 

We do not want to ship a version of httpd which has severe interop problems with the released openssl 1.1.1. 
HOWEVER: it is unclear, if this will not also trigger in some scenario when one links 2.4.35 with OpenSSL 1.1.1.

I am all in favor of pushing a 2.4.37 immediately after this bug is fixed. We will not solve any remaining problems by letting it stew in the repository.

As it stands now, we have more than 3 binding +1 votes, but I am waiting for closure on the conversation on-list about the tests with reported H2/TLS 1.3 failures. Since this is one of the primary features of this release, I want to be sure the topic gets due attention.

It looks as if mod_ssl interpreted the return codes of SSL_read() in a way that no longer works and that we need to change mod_ssl handling here.
