Julian: I'm happy to code it and test it and send you a patch. But what I
need from you is guidance along the lines of:
"MS should have a file called FILE-MS whose purpose is PURPOSE-MS and
another file called FILE-ENV whose purpose is PURPOSE-ENV."
The purposes are probably something like:
PURPOSE-MS: set variables used within "MailScanner.conf"
PURPOSE-ENV: set variables (environment) used by scripts.
And advice on file names. "FILE-MS" is already "MailScanner"; but what
should "FILE-ENV" be called?
On the other hand we could do the dirty fudge of throwing everything into
the existing single file. In reality for this particular issue that means
testing whether the existing "/etc/sysconfig/MailScanner" can simply take
an additional "http_proxy" specification which (a) works (b) doesn't break
If you can advise on those items, I'll try to code it and test it.
