Changes to www/hashpolicy.wiki.
165 165 Of course, if some members of your team stubbornly refuse to upgrade past 166 166 Fossil 1.37, you should avoid changing the hash policy and creating 167 167 artifacts with SHA3 names, because once you do that your recalcitrant 168 168 coworkers will no longer be able to collaborate. 169 169 170 170 <h2>A Pure SHA3 Future</h2> 171 171 172 -At some point in the future, years from now, after everybody has finally 173 -upgraded to Fossil 2.0 or later, the default hash policy will probably 174 -change to "sha3", or maybe even "shun-sha1". By the time that happens, 175 -you will probably already be using SHA3 on all your projects and so you 176 -are unlikely to notice. 172 +At some point in the future, after everybody has finally upgraded to 173 +Fossil 2.0 or later, the default hash policy will probably change to 174 +"sha3", or maybe even "shun-sha1".
