let me start by saying that I very much would like to get
Majordomo up and running on our system (we have used Smartlist before).
During the setup I have run into numerous problems, which can be
1) me being brain-dead
2) docs somewhat muddled
3) idiosyncracies of our AIX box
Anyway, I finally decided to look into the code to get a better understanding
of what is going on and one of the first things I ran across was the
following logical construct in "resend":
Resend looks for a config file (-C other.cf) switch on the command line.
If present, it eval's this file. The default for the file is the
majordomo.cf, so presumably, the commands in the other.cf file are
the same (maybe with different values) as the ones in majordomo.cf.
Unfortunately, a couple of lines further down resend "requires"
"config_parse.pl", which in turn requires majordomo.cf.
That overwrites any changes from other.cf :-(
One of the problems I am struggling with is how to "approve" submissions
from a PC/Mac running Eudora or Pegasus mail. The BOUNCE message (why
the heck is it BOUNCE and not APPROVE?) requesting
approval needs heavy massaging before I can send it back to majordomo, and
so far I always lose the "Subject:". It would be nice if the approved
message could be sent back simply via "REPLY" with the "Approved: "
line up front (not in the header) and that resend (or whatever munges this
message) could restore the original message without the quoting characters
added by the PC/Mac mailer (some use ">", some other constructs). Should
be straightforward too since all of the original message should have the same
quoting EXCEPT the first line with the "Approved:" stamp.
Anyway, if this capability exists, would someone please point me into the
right direction. If someone's working on these issues, great, if not, I'd be
willing to take that on.
