Bug#895074: debian-installer: Please replace 'c_rehash' with 'openssl rehash'

Control: tag -1 patch pending

Hi Sebastian,

Sebastian Andrzej Siewior <sebastian@breakpoint.cc> (2018-04-07):
> Source: debian-installer
> Version: 20171204
> Severity: normal
> Tags: sid buster
> User: pkg-openssl-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org
> Usertags: c_rehash
> This package is using the c_rehash command which is part of the
> openssl package. The c_rehash script is considered by upstream as a
> fallback script and will disappear at some point. The recommended way
> is to use the "openssl rehash" command instead which appeared in
> 1.1.0. Please make sure that this package does not use the c_rehash
> command anymore.
> The "openssl rehash" command creates half that many symlinks (one per
> certificate instead of two) because it uses only the newer hash.
> There is also the -compat option which creates both symlinks (and
> behaves like c_rehash currently does). The hash changed from md5 to
> sha1 during the 0.9.8 to 1.0.0 transition so I doubt that the
> "compat" mode will be required.
> Should the c_rehash script be mentioned in the source code or script
> of this package but is not used during the build process or in the
> final package then feel free to close the bug saying so.

Thanks for the notice, implemented in git:
