Since release 3.1 (2004-04-09) default ssh config directory was unified to /etc/ssh
Distributions where /etc/ssh is default config dir:
P.s. Can't find distro where /etc/openssh is default config dir.
1) Add symlink /etc/ssh to /etc/openssh/
2) Add deprecated warning
3) Move /etc/openssh to /etc/ssh. Add symlink /etc/openssh to /etc/ssh
4) Possibly remove symlink
Almost all distros use /etc/ssh, so more and more software will hardcode /etc/ssh. No need to have non-standard config directories and hack packages to use them.
More scripts will be compatible to ALT Linux.
I don't see any point in changing /etc/openssh to anything else, it would just break things without any benefit.
I think it's OK to add a compatibility symlink /etc/ssh -> openssh, I don't see any potentially negative effects.
I think that making smth in ALT Linux similar to all other distros is enough to be a benefit.
I suggest making changes slowly in few releases in order not to break anything, rather not making them.
Let's start from creating symlink /etc/ssh -> /etc/openssh

Yes, some level of compatibility might be beneficial, nobody argues about that,
but I don't see how a similarity by itself could be beneficial.
