Thanks again.  As you know, the papers have gone through.

I've applied your patch, as well as a couple others.
In addition to the src/md5sum.c change listed below,
I moved the four test scripts into tests/misc, rather
than leaving each in its own directory.

As I'm sure you realize, there's too much duplication
between lib/md5.c and lib/sha*.c.  Eventually, it'd be
good to factor out some of that.

        * Version 6.0-cvs.

        * src/md5sum.c (digest_check, main): Use ptr_align rather than
        a dangerous pointer-value-to-`unsigned' cast.
        * NEWS: mention the new sha* programs.
        * AUTHORS: Add new sha* programs.

2005-08-28  David Madore  <address@hidden>

        Add new programs: sha224sum, sha256sum, sha384sum, sha512sum.
        * README: Add their names to the list.
        * src/md5sum.c: Provide framework for computing sha-2 hashes.
        * src/Makefile.am (sha224sum, sha256sum, sha384sum, sha512sum):
        Rules for compiling sha-2 utilities
        (noinst_HEADERS): Remove checksum.h.
        * man/sha512sum.x, man/sha384sum.x, man/sha256sum.x, man/sha224sum.x:
        New files.
        * man/Makefile.am (dist_man_MANS): Add the corresponding .1 names.
        (sha224sum.1, sha256sum.1, sha384sum.1, sha512sum.1): New dependencies.
        * tests/misc/sha224sum, tests/misc/sha256sum: New files.
        * tests/misc/sha384sum, tests/misc/sha512sum: New files.
        * tests/misc/Makefile.am (TESTS): Add new sha224sum, sha256sum,
        sha384sum, sha512sum test scripts here rather that each in its
        own directory.

2005-08-28  David Madore  <address@hidden>

        * tests/sha1sum/basic-1 (million-a): Add the "million a's" test (one
        of the FIPS test vectors).
