SmartList is a mailing list manager built on top of the procmail mail processing package. Some features: * Enough intelligence to overcome the ignorance of some subscribers (will direct subscribe and unsubscribe requests away from the regular list and automatically onto the -request address). * No hardwired format for (un)subscribe requests (i.e. new subscribers need not be educated, unsubscribing users do not need to remember any particular syntax). * Intelligent automatic removal of addresses from the list that cause too many bounces. * Duplicate submissions are eliminated automatically. * You can set up a mailing list to function as a standalone mail archive server.

    2015-08-30 - Santiago Vila <> smartlist (3.15-25) unstable; urgency=medium * debian/fakeroot-workaround: Move to debian/rules. * debian/rules: Drop obsolete comments and set permissions in a more straightforward way. Hopefully the package is reproducible now. * debian/rules: Add recommended targets build-arch and build-indep. * debian/rules: Use dpkg-buildflags.

    2015-05-15 - Santiago Vila <> smartlist (3.15-24) unstable; urgency=low * Use gzip -n to stop recording current time. Closes: #777445. * Fix mtimes before building binary package as well.

    2014-05-03 - Santiago Vila <> smartlist (3.15-23) unstable; urgency=medium * Switch to 3.0 (quilt) source format. The source for this package was the sum of upstream procmail 3.15 and smartlist 3.15 tarballs. To make things simpler, this package used to contain all the patches that were also applied to the procmail package, even if not needed. To differentiate easily between them I'm using "procmail-" and "smartlist-" as prefix in debian/patches. * Remove "rc.init" and "reject" at /var/list/.etc on purge, so that no traces are left. Discovered by piuparts. Closes: #670263. * Changed rc.request to allow larger messages to be sent to the -request address. Raised threshold for "sane" size from 4096 to 16384 bytes. Reported by Thomas Preud'homme. Closes: #700216. * Removed way obsolete Recommends on base-passwd. * Removed way obsolete Conflicts on suidmanager. * Fixed lintian overrides syntax.

    2010-08-24 - Santiago Vila <> smartlist (3.15-22) unstable; urgency=low * Fixed several scripts to deal with domain names starting with numbers. Thanks to Cord Beermann. Closes: #580703.

    2010-01-25 - Santiago Vila <> smartlist (3.15-21) unstable; urgency=low * Changes in preinst: - Removed obsolete code which removes buggy postrm when upgrading from a release older than 3.10-12 (nearly 13 years ago). - Removed obsolete warning about hardlinks in .etc when upgrading from a release older than 3.10.7-2 (more than 10 years ago). - Trust that base-passwd does its job and do not ask the user to press Enter if user list does not exist, it has wrong uid or gid, or it has a wrong home directory. Exit code is still 1 if such thing ever happens. - Removed backwards compatibility code which creates a backup of rc.init when upgrading from a release older than 3.10-13 (nearly 13 years ago). * Changes in postinst: - Removed obsolete code which creates rc.init from backup copy. - Removed obsolete code which updates rc.init when upgrading from a release older than 3.15-2 (8 years ago). - Removed obsolete code which creates symlinks for confirm-error.txt and rc.rfc822 for lists created before 3.15-6 (7 years ago). - Added code which adds listid variable to already existing rc.init. * Changes in postrm: - On purge, remove aliases from /etc/aliases unconditionally. A backup copy is created in either case. - On purge, do not remove /var/list, as it may contain user data. * The above changes remove all user interaction. Closes: #553295, #566678. * Fixed mail-transport-agent dependency. Closes: #495838. * Added List-Id header in rc.init and rc.submit. * Modified digest script to add List-* headers to digests as well. Patch by Cord Beermann. Thanks a lot. Closes: #457415. * Added lintian overrides for files that may not be moved to /etc easily.

    2007-01-18 - Santiago Vila <> smartlist (3.15-20) unstable; urgency=high * Make autoconf.h without cflags, then make everything else as usual, as we did in procmail. Fixes FTBFS problem on s390.
