Thanks! I try to take some opinions on john-users.

If it could be reduced to "will this software be FOSS and available for other
teams before the contest (for instance all the time it exists)?" then I would
like to say "yes, of course, as of john-users is a totally FOSS team". But it
does not answer your question formally because even availability does not mean
that other (big) teams will use it. Do not read this wrongly, i.e. I do not
mean that there should be any intended obstacles for other teams to use this
software. Though it is my opinion. What is yours?
