Hello, I'm planing to copy my mediawiki user accounts to another system.

I'd need to get the passwords either in md5 hash or in clear. I checked 
out the manual [1], password aren't stored as simple MD5 hash, an 
additional string is added. Is there a way I can convert them into 
regular hash of the password?

Many thanks,
