Subject: [gentoo-dev] SHA256 digest issues

1 As reported in bug 131293 a pycrypto bug caused a lot of digest and
2 Manifest files to be created with bogus sha256 hashes. A fixed
3 pycrypto (2.0.1-r5) was committed to the tree. This means the
4 following:
6 - If you run ~arch portage and the latest pycrypto you will hit digest
7 failures. You will hit fewer digest failures as packages are fixed.
8 - If you run ~arch portage and do not upgrade pycrypto you will hit
9 more and more digest issues as stuff is fixed.
10 - If you run stable portage you are not affected.
12 If you commit to the tree with an unfixed pycrypto you can add new
13 broken digests, so please do not do that.
15 We (portage project) are fixing known broken Manifests/digests. If you
16 come across any broken SHA256 digests feel free to fix them though:
17 the package is basically unusable with ~arch portage until it is
18 fixed, and fixing it twice does not really hurt :)
20 Apologies for the inconvenience.
