Comment 1 Miloslav Trmač 2010-04-30 19:33:23 UTC
lib/formats.c:pgpsigFormat () recognizes PGPHASHALGO_{MD5,SHA1}, and prints other hash algorithms as a number - "8" means SHA256.

Comment 2 Panu Matilainen 2010-05-03 07:29:01 UTC
Yup, it's a silly (and ages old) cosmetical issue originating from copy-paste code to convert signature type enums to strings not getting updated.

Comment 3 Panu Matilainen 2010-05-19 12:38:37 UTC
Fixed upstream.
