The problem with the above is that the people who did the work did enough for it to work in their configuration and dropped it in.. Having recently fixed some of this, it's clear that they didn't bother to test starting/stopping parts of sendmail and more complicated configurations... This is standard stuff that needs to be maintained... and I don't belive dma will magicly fix stuff like the above... It just means someone will rewrite it with a new set of bugs... -- John-Mark Gurney Voice: +1 415 225 5579 "All that I will do, has been done, All that I have, has not." _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
