System: NetBSD this 1.4Y NetBSD 1.4Y (THAT) #13: Sun May 21 01:53:53 GMT 2000 root@this:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/THAT i386
now that sendmail has been upgraded to 8.10.1 and the sendmail
suite of files has been moved to /etc/mail, changelist was
updated to track changes in both locations: /etc/sendmail.cf
and /etc/mail/sendmail.cf, which doesn't work. i upgrade my
/etc every week or two, and the first time i got a nightly
security email that said that /etc/sendmail.cf had disappeared
and that /etc/mail/sendmail.cf had appeared, i thought it was
normal. then i got one the night after that and the night
after that, and so on and so on.
/etc/changelist lists both versions so the first one (the one
in /etc/mail, which does exist) it finds, counts as the file
being created and the second one (the old /etc location) counts
as being deleted (since it's not there).
upgrade to sendmail 8.10.1, move your sendmail.cf to the new
location, and upgrade your changelist file.
/etc/changelist (or the security script) might like to be taught
to deal with files with the same name in different locations,
but this patch makes my problem go away.
i also removed /etc/sendmail.cw (and added the 8.10 equivalent)
since the newer changelist file should really be supporting
