As far as I'm aware, there's still no crypt(3) encoding syntax defined for scrypt (which is intended primarily as a KDF rather than a password hashing method for servers), so we'd have to devise our own. How is that "closer to upstream"? It does make sense to use scrypt for password hashing, but how exactly that will be done and whether it'll be scrypt or something future inspired by scrypt and others is not clear yet: http://www.openwall.com/lists/crypt-dev/2011/05/12/4 http://www.openwall.com/lists/crypt-dev/2012/08/07/1 Alexander
