Unfortunately, the numbers overlap with those for pre-j7 patches and the patch filenames do not consistently include "-j7-" in them (some do, some don't). Also, some patches are under john/john-1.7.8/ and some are right in john/. One idea I had was to use "find -mtime" on the server, but this would catch obsoleted patches too (there were a few that were replaced with newer revisions). I ended up doing the following: lftpget http://openwall.info/wiki/john/patches vi patches # left only the needed portion for u in `sed -rn 's/^.*a href="(\/[^?"]*)[?"].*$/\1/p' patches`; do lftpget http://openwall.info/$u; done This worked, but going forward I think we should be more careful in naming these patches. Maybe the numbers should not reset to 0001 after each jumbo? Maybe we should create a new subdir after each jumbo and place the files in there consistently? Also, I think we need to use another table on the wiki page for the many numbered patches that are meant for inclusion in next jumbo - perhaps below the table with patches aimed at end-users. Otherwise e.g. the GPU patches become hard to find. Of course, git will be the proper solution... but the above suggestions may help for now. Alexander
