Description Michael Moen 2005-02-20 11:53:06 UTC
Modify the qmail-scanner ebuild to read in a local config from maybe /etc/conf.d/qmail-scanner to be included at the end of the configure string.

This would allow people to maintain/override settings across new ebuilds.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

attach a patch with your functionality.

what would be more useful is a mod to qmail-scanner that moves the configuration section out to a new file.

Proposed patch

Tested, works as expected against latest ebuild.
Comment 3 Manuel Nickschas 2005-07-19 02:01:20 UTC
Anything new? Right now the ebuild is pretty much unusable for me, because I 
need different options than the ones supplied in the ebuild. So I need to edit 
the ebuild whenever I'd like to install a new version... Some global config  
for the ebuild would be nice... 
Comment 4 Carter Smithhart 2006-01-08 13:24:26 UTC
I think a /etc/conf.d/qmail-scanner should be included as part of the install... That way a user could edit it without trying to figure out what goes into it.

btw, can we get this change (plus my suggestion above) into portage?

I don't even see qmail-scanner in portage anymore. The previous comment was made about 6 years ago. I'd say close this bug.
