Package: unattended-upgrades
Version: 0.79.5+wheezy1
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

Minor cosmetic issue in the report emails -- text immediately
after an =s is being treated as a 8-bit QP escape.

This is most noticeable in the allowed origins, where origin=debian is replaced
with origin=<missing char placeholder>bian throughout.

I have determined that this is using the sendmail mailing path on the machines
in question.

Thank you for the patch, but it seems the encoding is already fixed in
0.82 in a different way.

The email format is now checked in
debian/tests/upgrade-between-snapshots BTW.

Feel free to reopen the issue if you found it unfixed in a release after
