Hi Gisle The Digest-HMAC distributions uses internally for the module Digest::SHA1. Digest::SHA is part of the standard perl distribution since perl v5.9.3 so, if used in could reduce the external dependencies by one. Could it be possible to change Digest-HMAC to use Digest::SHA instead of Digest::SHA1? Or if you would like to keep Digest::SHA1, add some alternatives checking (e.g. like spamassassin does checking for Digest::SHA or as alternative Digest::SHA1)? Regards Salvatore, Debian Perl Group
