In Reply to: [gentoo-dev] Tree-signing GLEPs update by "Robin H. Johnson"
- This GLEP should be considered regardless of GLEP58 passes, as it has
  independent value.
- Python 2.5 is widely deployed now (and a dep on newer versions of
  Portage), so SHA512 is easily available.
- RIPEMD160 was broken, so drop it as well.
- Add WHIRLPOOL algorithm as it's not vulnerable to the same
  decomposition analysis introduced by Wang et al.
- Add more detail to the migration plan.
