Can't tell you if they've been subsequently modified, but the h3clogin and 
h3crancid were originally written by me, based on some earlier work of 
others, and published here:


I then had to make a lot of changes, and modified for rancid 3, producing:


The versions I run locally are advanced from these, but I've no idea of 
whether they are in a state to be published - I have practically zero 
development time these days.  But if I do, I will mention here.

I only have access to 3Com/HP Comware 3 devices, HP/H3C Comware 5 and 
HP(E) Comware 7 devices.  I have no Huawei, but a few people who have 
tried some models and reported some success, or fed back further changes.
