./news/leafnode, NNTP server for small (dialup) sites

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.11.11, Package name: leafnode-1.11.11, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Leafnode is a USENET software package designed for small sites, with a
few tens of readers and only a slow link to the net.

Only groups that someone has been reading in the past week are fetched
from the upstream NNTP server. When someone stops reading a group,
fetchnews will stop reading that group a week later (this is the default
which can be configured), and when someone starts reading a group, fetchnews
will grab all the articles it can in that group the next time it runs.

Log message:
all: migrate some SourceForge homepage URLs back from https to http

https://mail-index.netbsd.org/pkgsrc-ch … 05146.html

In the above commit, the homepage URLs were migrated from http to https,
assuming that SourceForge would use the same host names for both http and
https connections. This assumption was wrong. Their documentation at
https://sourceforge.net/p/forge/documen … %20VHOSTs/ states
that the https URLs use the domain sourceforge.io instead.

To make the homepages from the above commit reachable again, pkglint has
been extended to check for reachable homepages. This check is only
enabled when the --network command line option is given.

Each of the homepages that referred to https://$project.sourceforge.net
before was migrated to https://$project.sourceforge.io (27), and if that
was not reachable, to the fallback URL http://$project.sourceforge.net

Log message:
all: migrate several HOMEPAGEs to https

pkglint --only "https instead of http" -r -F

With manual adjustments afterwards since pkglint 19.4.4 fixed a few
indentations in unrelated lines.

This mainly affects projects hosted at SourceForce, as well as
freedesktop.org, CTAN and GNU.

Log message:
leafnode: update to 1.11.11.

Updated provided by Michael Bäuerle via pkgsrc-wip.

* 1.11.11, 2015-08-25

- The configfile parser now strips whitespace between a configuration
  parameter's value and a trailing comment. Found by Cecil Westerhof.
- The roff manual page sources now render proper hyphens (-), minus characters
  (\-) and en-dashes (\[en]) depending on their context. This is so that
  copying-and-pasting from the manual page works properly.
- The code that checks if the peer is local now properly deals with IPv4
  mapped IPv6 addresses.

Log message:
Update to 1.11.10 (2013).  Notable changes:

- Performance optimization, reported by Gary R. Schmidt.
- Fix a file descriptor leak in fetchnews.c's getbody_newno function
- When complaining that we are unable to switch the user ID, report the
  current real and effective user IDs to ease debugging.

- Leafnode now enables IPv6 support by default. Use --without-ipv6 to disable.
- Leafnode now supports detecting if a peer is in a local network also
  for IPv6 global addresses, providing that the host OS provides getifaddrs().
  This comprises Linux, NetBSD, FreeBSD, but not, for instance, Solaris 10.
