Subject: Re: python *2john scripts

So I did a little testing with the activestate python. I couldn't reproduce
the the odf2john bug but I'll try with the proper version of python later
and in the pdf2john the activestate python seems to return -1 from a find
string method where other version's of python find the matching string and
return the position it's a really odd bug but I'm not sure how much we have
to worry about active python since it's not the version blessed by the
python foundation and I can't look at the source to see what it's doing
