#367 Another bundled MD5 implementation originally by Ulrich Drepper

Created 3 years ago by mschwendt

In "Busybox" another bundled MD5 implementation has been found,


originally by Ulrich Drepper, but it's not the one as covered before in https://fedorahosted.org/fpc/ticket/130

Since there hasn't been any response in bugzilla yet, I've opened this ticket here.

Approved: use bundled(md5-drepper) and please continue to see if busybox would be willing to switch implementations to use the version from gcc.

(+1:5, 0:0, -1:0)

The meeting log is unclear since the FPC members have voted on "bundled(md5-Drepper2)":

18:08:43 <abadger1999> +1

18:10:39 <abadger1999> #info Approved use of bundled(md5-Drepper) and asked the reporter to continue to find out if busybox will switch implementations (+1:5, 0:0, -1:0)

After the meeting, I saw that the first bundled provide for Ulrich Drepper's code was md5-gcc rather than md5-drepper. It doesn't matter to me though. (although I think all fpc members would rather use lowercase).

I'll change it to bundled(md5-drepper2) since that's what we voted on.
