Ping? Petr, you seem to have updated to 1.0rc7 a few days ago. This quick patch
would have been a welcome change, as it fixes this issue and would allow to
close this FC6Blocker bug.
Sorry, i must have overlooked this. I have no idea why it is a blocker though,
it is just a documentation issue -- the script is installed
under /usr/share/doc/. It does not affect functionality of the package in any
way and self-signed certificates are generated by scriptlets anyway.
Either way, i have fixed this in CVS.
Fixed in FC-5 CVS as well, will push update soon or later.
dovecot-1.0-0.beta8.3.fc5 has been pushed for fc5, which should resolve this issue. If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
