Subject: [gentoo-user] New(er) initscript for net-mail/fetchmail: now with inline config support!
Date: Wed, 19 Oct 2011 01:42:04
1 After having Bug #380371 [1] accepted into portage tree (yay! Still having a
2 high from thatp, I present you with another enhancement on the initscript I
3 whupped up there: Bug #387009 [2].
5 This should be a 'drop-in' enhancement to the current initscript (if you've
6 religiously updated fetchmail to the version incorporating Bug #380371).
8 The main enhancement would be the ability to specify the fetchmail 'rc' as a
9 (multi-line) variable in the related conf.d. This reduces the number of
10 files you have to maintain for fetchmail daemons to just one (per daemon).
12 Comments are of course very welcome!
14 (Note: I've personally deployed the new initscript into my office's
15 production boxen, so it's tested. Bugs may still creep up, though, so I'll
16 surely appreciate any bug report.)
