Description of problem:
No problem, really; just wanted to fix some other stuff (that turned out to be a
legacy (mis)configuration), and updated nmh as part of seaching for the problem.
Seems to work fine here...

SRPM for nmh-1.2
I've been meaning to do this for a while now. Honestly there have been several
rather important bugs fixed in the nmh CVS since 1.2. It would probably make
more sense to pull from CVS rather than let anyone suffer through 1.2.
Also, as a note to myself, the locking patch is no longer needed as the packages
are now built using fcntl locking rather than dot locking.
Re #2: Never got to wrap my mind around CVS... and that after working /very/

I got the nmh repo into git here right now. There sure are a /lot/ of changes
since 1.2. What would you propose doing? Add a (mega)patch from 1.2 -- present?

nmh SRPM for CVS as of today
Needed some tweaks, see the %changelog in the SRPM.
I've added nmh-1.2-20070115cvs.1.fc7 to CVS this evening. It's building now.
Thanks for the help. I would suggest any effort you wish to invest in the
development of nmh be spent working with the upstream project (we need all the
help we can get):
