Small world.  Just saw a discussion on that bug.

Python developers are supposed to use hashlib rather than md5 as of python 2.6
md5 still works, but it won't in 2.7/3.0 etc.

1 - it's just a warning and you can ignore it.
2 - it's being fixed/has been fixed as of this morning.


PS - if you
want gory details....
