Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 60770
cron.daily script should set LANG=C
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:40:45 EDT
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):
should be fixed in 2.3.2-11 from rawhide.
