Description Tom Horsley 2019-08-22 11:22:14 UTC
Description of problem: Using fetchmail to suck mail off servers and feed it to my local dovecot server. The fetchmail rc file uses the "mda" directive to send them mail through /usr/libexec/dovecot/deliver. Since some update of dovecot (not sure when, since I didn't notice right away), I now get the logs from running fetchmail filled up with: lda(tweety,)Error: net_connect_unix(/var/run/dovecot/stats-writer) failed: Permission denied Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): dovecot-pigeonhole-2.3.6-3.fc30.x86_64 dovecot-2.3.6-3.fc30.x86_64 How reproducible: 100% Steps to Reproduce: 1.see above 2. 3. Actual results: permission denied errors Expected results: clean log files Additional info: Presumably if I make a /etc/dovecot/conf.d/90-stats.conf file and set access permissions on /var/run/dovecot/stats-writer to 0666, this will go away, but I have no idea if that is a reasonable solution in general. Seems like there ought to be a secure mechanism for deliver to write stats if it insists on trying.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 30 is nearing its end of life. Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 30 on 2020-05-26. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '30'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version. Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not able to fix it before Fedora 30 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete.

Fedora 30 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2020-05-26. Fedora 30 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this bug. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
