With the advent of OTP-23 there are some changes in the support of NIF functions.
This affected bcrypt, which we use for password encryption.
We have released a new version of bcrypt that works on OTP-23.
The new version is using APIs that are available since OTP-21.
Consequence is that if we want to support OTP-23 then we have to drop support for OTP-20 and older.
The proposal right now, is to indeed drop support on master for OTP20 and older.
Only OTP-21 and newer will then be supported.
I am curious which OTP versions are used right now and if this decision will badly affect anyone.
Or that, which I suspect, most are already using OTP-21 and newer.
