-- no debconf information

We migrate a SVN server to a Debian 7 wheezy old-stable.

After add subervsion-tools to get the post-commit scripts we got 2 problems :

1°) error at mail submit : option -f in not supported by exim :

* Error in command line:

mail: Cannot give -f and people to send to
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/srv/subversion/Viry/DMS/hooks/", line 1353, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/svn/", line 281, in run_app

  File "/srv/subversion/Viry/DMS/hooks/", line 1020, in _render_diffs
    w('\nAdded: %s\n' % diff.path)
IOError: [Errno 32] Broken pipe

* Manual correction in

  def start(self, group, params):
    MailedOutput.start(self, group, params)

    ### gotta fix this. this is pretty specific to sendmail and qmail's
    ### mailwrapper program. should be able to use option param substitution

    #cmd = self.cmd + [ '-f', self.from_addr ] + self.to_addrs
    cmd = self.cmd + [ self.from_addr ] + self.to_addrs

2°) after this patch, mail is sent, but format not good for Exim :  the 
metadata like from, type,... are in the body of the mail :

 Final result:

* Missing subject line
* All meta info shown in body
