Description Eric Martin 2008-08-09 17:43:06 UTC
After emerging, the ebuild directs you to view the url mentioned above.  File doesn't exist on the upstream website.  I realize this is an upstream problem but I don't know where to open a bug upstream.  There is documentation (not 2.4.6) in /usr/share/doc/portage-2.4.6-r2.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.emerge postfix
2.try to go to website
3.file doesn't exist

Actual Results:  
file wasn't there

Expected Results:  
download a file / point to local documenation (/usr/share/doc/postfix-2.4.6-r2)

Possibly add an ewarn line pointing users to /usr/share/doc/${MY_SRC} as well.

2.4.6 is no longer available, for newer Postfix version the RELEASE_NOTES are available plus the RELEASE_NOTES are installed in /usr/share/doc/postfix-$version. Also you're pointed to the RELEASE_NOTES using that URL in pkg_setup, i.e. before installing a newer postfix version to be able to check for possible incompatibilities.

Closing this one as CANTFIX.
