So maybe I am wrong in choosing to use the john-users list for more things than many others feel it is appropriate for. However, I think it is important that john-users alone, without john-dev, worked well for us up until the point where we started to discuss source code changes in detail, with code snippets and patches included. (In fact, even some of the patches were appropriate for end-users.) I prefer to err on the side of keeping discussions on john-users more rather than less advanced. I think simply announcing where a new and relevant Open Source project is located, including the source code, is john-users material. More so than john-dev, at least. > This is related to code and i think it advanced > because it is not related to John The Ripper itself. How i now > understand is: > > https://github.com/alainesp/HashSuiteDroid announce for john-dev > http://hashsuite.openwall.net/android announce for john-users No, both are john-users material. "not related to John The Ripper itself" could make the posting off-topic for either list, but if we choose to post anyway, then john-users is more appropriate. This does not make the posting too advanced for john-users while keeping it OK for john-dev. > Nevertheless i will forward the email to john-users (with the changes > you suggested). Thank you! Alexander P.S. Sorry for the bikeshed.
