Description Stepan Kasal 2007-05-31 07:01:06 EDT
Description of problem:
/etc/Muttrc contains the version number 6 times, and it is updated each time a
new version is used.
Since /etc/Muttrc is a config file, and the user may have modified it, this
unnnecessary change makes the diff longer and presents extra work during the
upgrade.  See the attached diff.

I suggest to create a symlink to the directory, either /usr/share/doc/mutt, or
/usr/share/mutt

Comment 2 Miroslav Lichvar 2007-05-31 10:05:42 EDT
Yes, /etc/Muttrc is marked as a config file, but /etc/Muttrc.local should be
used for local changes.

Since /etc/Muttrc has also listed all available options with descriptions it's
likely that a newer version will have more changes in the file than just the
version strings.

The lynx package has a similar setup.
Comment 3 Stepan Kasal 2007-06-11 09:20:32 EDT
OK Miroslav, I admit there is no real need to change the current setup, closing.
Thanks for your time.
