[New-bugs-announce] [issue14518] Add bcrypt $2a$ to crypt.py

Daniel Holth report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Daniel Holth <dholth at fastmail.fm>:

The prefix for bcrypt '$2a$' is supported on many systems and could be added to crypt.py

Could the documentation mention the available rounds parameter for most of these newer hashes? And that Unicode strings are automatically converted to utf-8 before being passed into the OS crypt() function, or is that just assumed to be common knowledge?
