Bug#834516: gnutls-bin: gnutls-cli no longer prints out "- Handshake was completed"

Package: gnutls-bin
Version: 3.5.3-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

After upgrading gnutls-bin from 3.5.2 to 3.5.3 Gnus hangs when fetching email
from imaps.

This is because gnutls-cli has stopped printing "- Handshake was completed",
which Gnus looks for.

It can be worked around by changing the variable tls-success in Gnus, which
may be the correct solution - I am reporting this bug in case the removal of
the text was unintended.

The printf was removed in https://gitlab.com/gnutls/gnutls.git in this commit:

  commit 7e051ae28c288c218584f75dbc6c097a3b2564c9

      tools: TLS handling has been incorporated into socket_open()
      This is of particular usage to the server IP address loop, since
      we can detect fast open errors and retry handshake to the next IP

Best regards,
