Interesting. What versions of gmime and xapian are you using with
notmuch on OpenBSD? IIRC(*) xapian 1.4 also wants zlib (but I am not
sure how new one).

(*) I am building notmuch for centos 6 using this script:
  
https://github.com/domo141/nottoomuch/blob/master/build/podman-notmuch-build-on-centos6.sh
  and I've configured xapian to use self-built zlib -- perhans not since
  xapian required, but that the same is used what notmuch(1) uses.

Thanks for the mail. In general we need each change in a separate patch

I've incorporated this change into another related series, thanks for
the report.

That seems legit. To speed things up, you could make a separate patch, rebased 
against
master.

I have to think / read about this more. A separate patch would help here
as well.

[PATCH] zlib-related bugs

2020-04-12 Thread Olivier Taïbi
the following diff addresses 3 zlib-related bugs in notmuch.
1) the second argument of gzerror() cannot be NULL, so replace it by a dummy
   
2) gzerror() cannot be closed after gzclosed(), so just print the error value
   instead.
3) in gz_getline(), if gz_error sets its second argument to Z_STREAM_END then
   there was no error (only EOF).  Unfortunately the zlib manual is not very
   clear on the meaning of Z_STREAM_END, but I don't see how it could be an
   error.  I found this issue by using notmuch on OpenBSD, which has an old
   zlib.  I encountered other issues with notmuch on OpenBSD (e.g. there is no
   transparency mode in this older zlib, so notmuch dump output is always
   gzipped), but they do not seem to be bugs in notmuch.
