Technically this is a bug, see below for details :-)

As it turns out, we use the ssl_base64 module and have left ourselves
a TODO in the code to remove this:

"We use the (undocumented) ssl_base64 module here because it is
present throughout OTP R11 and R12 whereas base64 only becomes
available in R11B-4. Once debian stable and EPEL have moved from
R11B-2 to R11B-4 or later we should change this to use base64."

In the meantime the world has moved on past R11B-4, so it's probably
time to create a bug to get this action itemed.

Thanks for pointing it out.
