I now created a new branch "1.7.9-jumbo-6-fixes" that is bugfix-only, except for Dhiru's new formats (PKCS #12 and RAdmin v2.x). This branch will lead to Jumbo-7 and end there. Anything committed there will be merged to the other branches. > However: > - We could consider merging Jim's generic SHA-2 code that is now in > bleeding.
