I am working on importing SE dump into askbot - could you please give a hint - how to calculate the password hash stored in file Passwords.xml in the SE dump?

Need to help someone migrate his SE site to Askbot.

Thank you!

I know this was on the old meta.SE before it was shut down. We really need to get a dump or read-only version of that site back. – Kyle Cronin Jun 25 '11 at 0:34

Gonna guess its a SHA hash. Which flavor could be determined with a little testing, assuming you have such an account that can be located in the dump. – Won't Jun 27 '11 at 14:05
