To make it short: I'm still totally demotivated and only waiting for the vacation to start, which will happen 2001-03-03.
I'm going to be _far_ away from any computer, i hope.

But still, there are promises to keep and things to be done:

  • wrote the qmail-sendmail replacement, which just replaces the commandline sendmail emulation in the qmail package (in case you wonder: you almost certainly don't need it).
  • released ftpcopy-0.3.5. There's no really important reason to update.
  • released upgpverify-0.3.2 , a pgp/gpg filter for use in .qmail files. It checks the signature, decrypting if needed, and call's another program which can read de-mimed payload on a file descriptor. It shall replace the hackish pgp stuff used in the BBS (i remember having promised to replace that years ago).
  • "released" (somewhat) cacco-0.4.0.tar.gz, a collection of tools to summarize cisco accounting files ("show ip accounting"). The documentation is pretty minimal. I packaged that just to keep a promise given almost 10 months ago.
    Besides it's quite a bit faster than the stuff my boss did.

I spent an evening trying to find out why lrzsz was unable to get stuff from a friends computer. It turned out that some piece of hardware at his site "compressed" a series of "@" bytes to just two "@" bytes. I really think his self-made internal communication system is at least a bit broken.
