Re: bin/36537 (sync(8) should not return until the buffers are flushed)
Synopsis: sync(8) should not return until the buffers are flushed
State-Changed-When: Sat, 21 Feb 2009 08:51:25 +0000
Submitter is rejecting mail from gnats:
501-(Note: This SMTP response message has multiple lines.)
501-A fatal error has been encountered while validating the HELO host name
501-given as 'narn.NetBSD.org'.
501-Your connection from www.netbsd.org, using the remote address
501-[184.108.40.206], has been rejected.
501-The reason given was:
501- the domain name 'narn.NetBSD.org' is a CNAME not a hostname (a
501- hostname must resolve to an A record, see RFC 1123 Section 5.2.2 and
501- 5.2.5, RFC 2821 Section 4.1.4; and RFC 2181 Section 10.2)
501 (If this last line is all you see then your mailer is broken.)
Without e-mail communications it is impossible to resolve problems or work
with gnats effectively.
(Furthermore, this reasoning is entirely spurious. Please fix your mailer.)
