Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.1.26nb10, Package name: distribute-2.1.26nb10, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

distribute - reforward incoming messages to a mailing list

Distribute takes as its standard input a mail message, modifies
the header (and optionally the body) of that message, then invokes
sendmail to send the message to the specified recipients. It is
primarily useful for those who run large mailing lists.

Distribute does not include membership management. It only does the
rewrite and dispatch of the mailng list emails.
Use majordomo (ports/mail/majordomo) for membership management.

Facilities include:
Article numbering
Subject rewrite to Subject: (mailing-list 1234)
Proper handling of error related headers
Reply-to rewrite/insertion if necessery
Archiving
membership file from Majordomo's configuration directory


Required to run:

Log message:
Sort PLIST files.

Unsorted entries in PLIST files have generated a pkglint warning for at
least 12 years. Somewhat more recently, pkglint has learned to sort
PLIST files automatically. Since pkglint 5.4.23, the sorting is only
done in obvious, simple cases. These have been applied by running:

  pkglint -Cnone,PLIST -Wnone,plist-sort -r -F
