BUILDD-MAIL(1) Debian sbuild BUILDD-MAIL(1)

NAME

buildd-mail - mail answer processor for buildd

SYNOPSIS

buildd-mail
 
buildd-mail-wrapper

VERSION

This man page documents the packaged version of buildd-mail. This version is maintained by the buildd-tools project developers on Alioth (https://alioth.debian.org/projects/buildd-tools/).
There is also a version maintained by Ryan Murray which is adapted to build daemon needs, with similar functionality. This version should be equally capable of working in a buildd setup, but has a number of enhancements aimed at making it suitable for use by end-users.

DESCRIPTION

buildd-mail processes incoming mail for the buildd user.
buildd-mail-wrapper was a setuid wrapper for buildd-mail, which has been removed and is no longer required. It has been kept as a symbolic link to buildd-mail for compatibility purposes, but is obsolete and will removed in a future release.

SETUP

The buildd user should have a file ~/.forward with the following contents:
|/usr/bin/buildd-mail-wrapper
 
This will ensure all incoming mail will be processed using buildd-mail.

FILES

/etc/buildd/buildd.conf
Configuration, maintained by the system administrator. This may be used to override the defaults.
~/.builddrc
User-specific configuration.
~/.forward
Mail forwarding configuration.
