Subject Re: migration concerns changing default hash in htpasswd/htdbm to sha1 for 2.2.x?
Date Wed, 12 Apr 2006 12:50:47 GMT

the htpasswd on unix/linux is uid:crypted_pw
so i'd use that as default... and a specific option to overwrite that.

or and ident tag for plain
user:{txt}password for example
