The authors of Argon2 also were very helpful to get the library to compile on ancient versions of Visual Studio for ancient versions of Python.
The documentation also quotes frequently from the Argon2 paper to avoid mistakes by rephrasing.
In order to be able to compile on Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Studio 2010 which are required for Python 2.7 and 3.4 respectively, we also ship two C headers with integer types. They are from the msinttypes project (auto-import on GitHub) and licensed under New BSD:
