Description Peter Vrabec 2007-10-23 06:17:14 EDT
createrepo should be ported to use NSS library for cryptography.
See the tracking bug for details and links on how it could be done.
Comment 1 Luke Macken 2007-10-23 09:48:01 EDT
Hmm.. what does porting createrepo to NSS entail?  As far as I know, it doesn't
utilize any crypto.
Comment 2 Tomas Mraz 2007-10-23 10:00:48 EDT
It calls SHA1 hash implementation from Python. However porting should be done
directly in python I think.
Comment 3 Seth Vidal 2007-10-23 10:03:42 EDT
yes, I think so, too. This isn't anything to file under createrepo. port python
sha module to nss and then nothing has to change at this level.
