 mailagent (1:3.1-24-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * New upstream release. After a long time, mailagent has revived. This
     version has bug fixes that make it friendlier to perl 5.10, and
     - Use strict RFC-822 definition for header names: the field name can
       be made of anything but SPACE or colon, from ASCII 33 to ASCII 126.
     - The patchlevel is now ignored, as we track by SVN revision
       number. Changed all version information reporting to new format
     - Added automatic computation of the SVN revision in "revision.h", for
       later  perusal by Configure to propagate correct revision numbers in
     - Added update of revision.h.
     - Removed the WARNING level, as it is not critical enough to warrant a
       daily notification.
     - Changed path for in the sample crontab entry.
     - Added bzip2 compressor.
     - Removed legacy hardwired HOME directory.  Compute it!
     - Removed more "$*" uses that are now forbidden by perl 5.10.
     - Integrated more changed from Debian:
       + Fixed maildir computation logic to avoid useless superseding.
       + Added regular expression for Top Level Domain validation.
       + Removed "compress" from the list of default compressors and added
     - Cleaned up by fixing most of the items listed in Debian bug #43171
       Bug fix: "mailagent: several problems with the manual page", thanks
       to                                (Closes: #43171).
     - Ensure POST always puts a single space after the field name to avoid
       INN rejecting the article due to invalid header.
     - Do not process the queue in the background when invoked from
       terminal, unless given an explicit -q switch, naturally.
     - Added -U switch to disable first UNIQUE / RECORD rejection for
     - Reduce maximum article age for POST to 10 days.
     - Look for utmp in /var/run as well, for modern systems with read-only
     - Cleaned up code a little bit since now Configure enables gcc
       warnings  by default and thus code required some uplifting.
     - Remove all usage of $* as it is no longer accepted by Perl 5.10.
     - Reset CDPATH to avoid pdksh's emission of the chosen dir on "cd".
