If you release a patch that applies on top of 1.7.6-jumbo-3 (and works), then someone might further revise it to be suitable for merging into the jumbo patch. > On 06/17/2010 04:37 PM, websiteaccess@...il.com wrote: > > I want JTR 1.7.6 with multicore support (mpirun -np 4 ./john ) > > What patch should I apply ? > > Patience, young jedi.

As to "reverting the cosmetics", I'll leave that up to you. I have no idea how broken or not they are - I am not using the JtR/MPI stuff (yet I find it desirable to release it as long as there are users for it). Thanks, Alexander
