Description Jeremy Portzer 2003-10-16 14:36:06 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1) Gecko/20031008

Description of problem:
The description for the postfix RPM says this:
Postfix is a Mail Transport Agent (MTA), supporting LDAP, SMTP AUTH (SASL), TLS
and running in a chroot environment.

However the chroot part is not true.  According to the changelog:

* Fri Mar 07 2003 John Dennis <jdennis@finch.boston.redhat.com>
- upgrade to release 2.0.6
- remove chroot as this is now the preferred installation according to Wietse
Venema, the postfix author

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
rpm -qip --changelog postfix-2.0.11-5.src.rpm
Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2005-09-28 06:25:56 EDT
This is a wrong changelog entry in my opinion.

Closing as NOTABUG.
