Description of problem:

There is already version of john available (and development version

update or explain why the older version is better.

If someone would like to take this package, I would be more than greatful. I
don't seem to have the time at the moment.

Any takers?


Comment 2 Till Maas 2007-01-09 15:35:57 UTC
I will take it. If it is ok with you, I will change owners.list tomorrow and
update john asap. 

Comment 3 Gavin Henry 2007-01-09 15:39:16 UTC
That's fine. It's best to be maintained by someone that uses it often, not

And that seems to be you ;-)

Thanks for the offer, accepted.
