Description David Woodhouse 2008-12-02 07:40:47 EST
/usr/share/quilt/compat/sendmail is useless. Why not just require an MTA and use /usr/sbin/sendmail directly? Or at _least_ have the script use /usr/sbin/sendmail if it exists, and give its existing error message if not.

I'd fixed this locally; an update broke it again. Please fix.
Comment 2 Josh Boyer 2009-03-16 12:55:59 EDT
Sigh.  I hate it when I fail to see bug reports.  My apologies for the delay.

This seems to be caused by an incorrect option to configure.  Replaced --with-mta with --with-sendmail and it appears to correctly point to /usr/sbin/sendmail via symlink.

Fixed in quilt-0.47-4.fc11  (also quilt-0.47-3.fc10)
