dovecot script for logwatch needs fix for IPv6
Last modified: 2008-03-05 05:35:38 EST
Description of problem:
The script for the dovecot entry in logwatch doesn't leave enough space for IPv6
addresses. This is the script at /usr/share/logwatch/scripts/services/dovecot.
This is a cosmetic problem, but easily fixed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
All the time for me, at least.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect to dovecot (I use IMAP, but I think POP would do the same), via IPv6
using an address that doesn't have reverse DNS.
2. Inspect the logwatch output.
The columns don't line up.
Columns should line up.
Attached is my modification to the script to fix the problem.
