            Bug ID: 2960
           Summary: rfc3156 deviation regarding hash symbols
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: 3.9.2
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: trivial
          Priority: P3
         Component: Plugins/Privacy
          Assignee: users at lists.claws-mail.org

RFC3156, section 5. OpenPGP signed data, states:

"Hash-symbols are constructed from the text names registered in [1] or
according to the mechanism defined in that document by converting the text name
to lower case and prefixing it with the four characters "pgp-"."

Claws however uses uppercase "PGP-" and uppercase mechanism name, for example

There relevant place in code is:

plugins/pgpmime/pgpmime.c:  micalg = g_strdup_printf("PGP-%s",

I propose changing the code to conform to rfc3156.

"PGP-%s" needs to be changed to "pgp-%s", and gpgme_hash_algo_name() output
needs to be converted to lowercase.
