Description Dan Yocum 1999-10-11 20:18:57 UTC
In Exmh, the option exists to search your mail boxes using
glimpse.  However, glimpse is not part of any version of the
distro - I've checked 5.0, 5.2 and 6.1.  This should
probably be put in.  Glimpse depends on agrep, so that'll
have to be put in as well.

exmh shouldn't depend on glimpse - it can work without it. Glimpse falls into
the same category as PGP - if you're including glimpse you should include
pgp/gpg as well - and RH can't do that until they get their act together and
start shipping a fully functional distro from within .eu so they're not bound by
the insane US export rules.

Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 1999-11-19 14:17:59 UTC
We can't ship glimpse because the glimpse license does not allow it.
It's optional software; exmh works fine modulo the glimpse features
without it.

Ah.  At first I couldn't grasp why.  Then after reading their web site, I see
now - search engines.  Looks like they're in cahoots with Transarc/IBM in some
strange manner.

Oh well.  "never mind."

Back in my box, back in my box.
