Description Jan Pokorný 2013-08-12 13:13:14 EDT
Luci, which was the primary reason behind original [bug 983292] in RHEL 6,
is not in RHEL 7, however issue with python-beaker sessions vs. FIPS can
occur here as well at some point.  Probably better to anticipate reaching
such point as upstream now contains the change (driven by the original bug)
dropping the use of md5 hash.

From [bug 983292]:
