I assume we're talking about the md5.c?

As per bug #21 [1], it came from public domain source and so I hereby
reserve no rights in copyright on md[45].[ch] or changes made to them to
integrate into FreeRADIUS.

(It's been brought to my attention since that you can't actually choose
to put things in the public domain in the US anymore, so this is as
close as I can get. It's pretty much what the original source said too.

Obviously this doesn't affect FreeRADIUS's distribution of them, as
the combination of them with FreeRADIUS is controlled by the LGPL.

(Same for snprintf.[ch], that was LGPL before I got to it)

we'd be running around in darkened rooms, popping pills and
listening to repetitive music.
