Thanks again for your contribution.  I've downloaded the patch from the
tinyurl URL, renamed it adding the missing -REVISION portion (set it to
"-1" for now), gzipped it, and placed it for FTP here:

ftp://ftp.openwall.com/pub/projects/john/contrib/

with a symlink from:

ftp://ftp.openwall.com/pub/projects/phpass/contrib/

I suggest that you:

1. Place your code in the public domain or license it properly as
suggested at http://openwall.info/wiki/john/licensing - a new wiki page
I've just created. :-)  Right now, you claim copyright, but you don't
specify any license.  One can assume that GNU GPLv2 would apply, if it
applies to the rest of JtR, which you patch and statically-link your
added file into, but I'd prefer an explicit statement.

2. Include a -REVISION in your patch file names from this point on, with
the next free number being "-2".

3. Upload the patch to the wiki at http://openwall.info/wiki/john/patches

It's the other way around.

Thanks again,

Alexander
