Description Daniel Roesen 2000-11-12 02:24:06 UTC
Recently I switched to using RH's mutt RPMs (but adding compressed folders
patch) and stumbled over the following problem:

In my standard .muttrc (which I use on many machines), I had:

source /usr/local/doc/mutt/samples/gpg.rc

Now I have to use:

source /usr/doc/mutt-1.2.5i/gpg.rc

The latter is not version independant so when upgrading mutt I will have to
change this path in all my .muttrc files. It would be better to have at
least the PGP/GnuPG interface .rc files in a version-independent location
such as /usr/share/mutt.

Comment 1 Daniel Roesen 2000-12-02 00:51:42 UTC
I overlooked the following .spec part:

cat contrib/gpg.rc >> \

so it's not needed at all to include gpg.rc at all in the user's .muttrc,
although it's probably a good idea to have the other PGP .rc interfaces
somewhere in /usr/share/mutt

Marking NOTABUG (because there is nothing like "INVALID" as resolution)
