Description Jan Kratochvil 2008-09-01 10:49:13 EDT
Description of problem:
After upgrading F9 to F10rawhide my mailing list started to corrupt the standard message signature delimiters.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(broken) mailman-2.1.11-3.fc10.x86_64 (produces X-Mailman-Version: 2.1.11)
(correct) mailman on my box was producing: X-Mailman-Version: 2.1.9

How reproducible:
Tried once.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a mailing list.
2. Put into its msg_footer:
-- $
%(real_name)s e-mail konference pro$
[ please cut the trailing single `$' character ]
3. Send a mail.
Actual results:
%(real_name)s e-mail konference pro$

Expected results:
-- $
%(real_name)s e-mail konference pro$

Additional info:
This is a standard message signature described in many Internet documents:

Having filter_content=no.
No digest delivery was involved.
Comment 1 Daniel Novotny 2008-10-27 06:56:12 EDT
the code, which simply changed "\r\n" to "\n" in the previous version of Mailman, now strips trailing spaces from the lines: I asked upstream, why they made this change.

they want to preserve format=flowed in the
Content-Type: header, that is why they made this change:

adjusted in the way the footer is not trimmed
