Use hashlib instead of md5 Module (

Reported by: [email protected] Owned by: desai
Priority: trivial Milestone: Bcfg2 1.1.0 Release
Component: bcfg2-client Version: 1.0
Keywords: md5 hashlib Cc:


The md5 module from the python stdard library is deprecated since version 2.5. See warning below (bcfg2 -v -n):

/usr/local/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/Bcfg2/Client/Tools/ DeprecationWarning?: the md5 module is deprecated; use hashlib instead

import md5

In case bcfg2 requires python 2.5 for installation:

See attachment for a very simple patch created against the 1.0.1 release (sorry, I don't have a svn copy). I'm not very familiar with the bcfg2 code but imho the md5 module is used only one time in the file.
