Description Enrico Scholz 2002-03-06 04:39:20 EST
Description of Problem:

When running /etc/cron.daily/inn-cron-expire with an other locale than C, mails
containing 8bit headers can be produced. This wiil be a violation of RFC 822.

E.g. in the de_DE locale this month will be expressed as 'Mdr' (bugzilla will
eat the middle char [228 dec in latin1] probably...) and subjects like:

| Subject: <host> Daily Usenet report for Die Mdr 5 04:02:01 CET 2002
                                          8bit german umlaut

will be produced. When using strict MTA settings such mails will be bounced.

I am seeing two solutions:
- fix innreport to produce correct encoded headers
- add 'LANG=C' to /etc/cron.daily/inn-cron-expire; perhaps it can be reduced to
'LC_TIME=C' also, but I am not sure if there are other effects

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 1 Florian La Roche 2002-04-08 09:23:15 EDT
should be fixed in 2.3.2-11 from rawhide.
