The question more is whether Check-Date=false should only disable Checks on the "Date" field or not. DonKult said it makes more sense to have it be a one stop that also sets Check-Valid-Until=false (and that's implemented in my branch). So basically you either have to set just Check-Date=false or you have to set both of them. In either case, you'll have option(s) to disable date checking :D -- debian developer - deb.li/jak | jak-linux.org - free software dev ubuntu core developer i speak de, en
