It is listed at http://openwall.info/wiki/john/parallelization#Table-of-existing-works but I see little reason to integrate it. Doesn't it depend on your unreleased web frontend software? Then, even if you release that, we can't reasonably have all sorts of distributed processing hacks integrated into the same tree at once, and I don't see GI John as being superior to the many other hacks. I think it's limited to doing dumb exhaustive searches, right? That said, please feel free to contribute it as a patch against magnum-jumbo and _maybe_ it'll get in, although I won't work on that personally (it'll be up to magnum to decide). There's already lots of stuff in the tree that I find questionable. ;-) Thanks, Alexander
