* Mon Mar 10 1997 Christian 'Dr. Disk' Hechelmann <>
  - changed devel package description to include tin.
  - the devel package missed libinn.h
  - moved libinn.3 man-page to the devel package
  - moved changelog up
  - in %post some echo statements were messed up. if we put the redirection
    staements in a different line than the echo command we really should use
    a backslash to thell the shell :-)
  - in %install a chmod line referenced the same directory twice.
  - changed inn-1.5.1-redhat.patch: The patch for news.daily had a side effect.
    as EXPIREOVERFLAGS was set to '-a', expireover would break if there were
    articles to be removed, as '-a' can't be used if '-z' is specified...
    Now there is a separate 'eval expireover -a' after the first eval. Dirty
    but works.
* Wed Feb 26 1997 Erik Troan <>

    nntpsend.ctl config file.
  - Added automated inn.conf 'server: ' line creation in %post
  - Added misc. patches from
  - Removed -lelf from LIBS
  - Made RPM_OPT_FLAGS work.
  - Bug in rpm meant that putting %post after %files made it not run. Moved
    %post up.
  - Added /etc/cron.hourly/inn-cron-nntpsend to send news every hour.
  - Fixed most of the misc permissions/ownership stuff that inncheck
    complained about.
* Wed Feb 19 1997 Erik Troan <>
  Incorporated changes from <> which fixed
  some paths and restored the cron jobs which disappeared in the 1.5.1
  switch. He also made the whole thing use a buildroot and added some files
  which were missing from the file list.
