md5 login with mod_python not working

Reported by: ramejan@… Owned by: hasienda
Priority: low Component: AccountManagerPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords: needinfo md5 login mod_python
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


As said at AccountManagerPlugin/AuthStores, there is a problem with Python's MD5 plugin module under mod_python Apache extension.
To work around this issue you can use pure Python implementation of MD5 (which is considerably slower than the native one but does the job).
See attached files for possible fix.

  • Keywords needinfo added

Is this an issue with - now depreciated - md5 module (Python<=2.4) or with the new, current md5 from hashlib? In the first case, is this fix still needed? Only very old distibutions (RedHat) have such an old Python version. I'm not going to pull in additional dependencies lightly, if I don't use them on my own.

  • Priority changed from normal to low

Please provide requested feedback to prevent this patch from being rejected.

After 1 1/2 year without response I feel justified to assume, that it's no longer relevant, right?

I think time has squeezed this issue down to nothing. Please re-open, if you can prove you point and especially provide feedback to the latest, still unanswered questions.
