Description of problem:
Steps to Reproduce:
1. edit .slrnrc
2. input >> set overview_date_format "%d.%m.%y"
3. start slrn
Actual Results: slrn raises an error with complaining about a syntax error
in the line with the overview_date_format setting
Expected Results: slrn has to start without any problems.
I've download the latest release of slrn version number: 0.9.7.0a
I've download the SRPM of slrn of Seawolf.
installed the rpm, changed the spec file to meet the specs of 0.9.7.0a,
deleted slrnpull and patches.
startet a rpm -ba slrn.spec
installed the result rpm file....see it works....
you can find the newly build RPM file on
Created attachment 18690 [details]
functional version of slrn for 7.1
attached a function version of the slrn package.
Um, you specified an invalid configuration directive for the version in 7.1.
What did you expect to happen?
FWIW, slrn-0.9.7.0a is currently in rawhide.
It was my mistake...
the configuration directives are introduced in 0.9.7.0 and not in 0.9.6.4....
no matter, it's my fault, but the documentation of slrn without saying anything
about date and version
of introducing this directives is also buggy.
