We have kept all the hazard stuff in bleeding-jumbo. I think Dhiru added one or two formats.

We'll just use bleeding for the crazy stuff for now, and start a third branch only if/when needed. Dhiru, please confirm: From now on push to bleeding if you are unsure, or consult the lists. However: - We could consider merging Jim's generic SHA-2 code that is now in bleeding. It's nice and clean and we've seen no problems with it. It would give a whole bunch of new formats to people stuck with OpenSSL 0.9.7. > Moving to new formats interface in a "main" tree (that most of us work > on) is not planned until August (if not later).

Sounds all good to me, thanks for clearing this up. magnum
