Follow-up Comment #6, bug #18170 (project freeciv): > Such an option is really rarely needed, and really shouldn't be > used by accident, so I wonder if it should be commandline-option > at all or only in database access configuration file (I haven't > checked new authentication database access code, but I assume > that server name and port, mysql user name and password are > still read from configuration file). Didn't know about that. Yes, that still exists on trunk in much the same form, I think (it's specified with "--Database <file>" rather than "--auth <file>" now).
It could take the form of a new "hash" parameter in that file, with options "md5" (default) and "md5swap" to solve this problem, but extensible to other hashes such as SHA-1 in future if we feel the need. _______________________________________________________ Reply to this item at: <http://gna.org/bugs/?18170> _______________________________________________ Message sent via/by Gna! http://gna.org/ _______________________________________________ Freeciv-dev mailing list Freecivemail@example.com https://mail.gna.org/listinfo/freeciv-dev
