A day or so ago, I made an announcement that there may be a problem with Zope storing 
passwords for members in the clear
in the SystemProperties propertysheet.

After som einvestigation, it does exactly what it is supposed to do. That is, store 
them encrypted with crypt by
default. The catch is, if crypt is not importable for some reason, it stores them in 
plain text.

Systems tested
 Linux, RedHat 6.2: Crypt works fine
 HP-UX 11.0: Crypt does not import, thus it stores them as plaintext.

If you install the Membership product, add a user, and then look at the property 
sheets for the user (see the wiki), you
can verify whether your platform encrypts correctly or not. If your system is not on 
the list above, please let me know
the results. Odds are all the current Linux distributions work fine.

Otherwise, it works fine. :^)=


Do not meddle in the affairs of sysadmins, for they are easy to annoy,
and have the root password.
