The SMS server tools allow setting up a central SMS gateway. It
sends and receives SMS messages using a simple file-based
interface. It can accommodate up to 20,000 messages a month.
It supports an event-handler option that allows calling customized
programs or scripts after sending or receiving SMS messages.
The SMS Server Tools use one or more (max. 32) GSM modems to send and
receive SMS messages. Some modems may be equipped with SIM cards such
as Vodafone or Telmi ones.  All messages are sorted in queues by the
provider. If one modem fails, it will be deactivated for one hour
before the software retries, while other modems run without any
restriction. The status information and alarms are logged with

smstools (3.1.15-1.2) unstable; urgency=high
* NMU by Jonas Meurer to push the fix into Jessie.
* Fix initscript (debian/init.d):
* drop action 'reload' as it does not what policy demands it to do. Use
'force-reload' in logrotate post-rotate action. This fixes 'force-reload'
action when used through systemd tools and prevents the smsd daemon
process from being killed at every log rotation. (closes: #782996)
* source /lib/lsb/init-functions in order to make systemd tools aware of
status changes to the daemon that have been caused by invoking the
initscript directly.

compiled using latest compilers."
