We have registered http://ezmlm.org/ to make access to ezmlm-idx and related programs/documentation easier.
Addition of ‘z’ are bug fixes only. Thus, ‘ezmlm-idx-5.0.2’ is ‘ezmlm-idx-5.0.0’ with known bugs fixed (but no other significant changes). When available, patches are named filename-x.y.z.diff, where ‘x.y.z’ corresponds to the release to which they apply. When a number of bugs (or a significant bug) are found a bug-fix release is made incorporating all the patches for the previous version.
To get the latest features, look for the highest number (‘e.g. ezmlm-idx-5.0.2’). Any bugs in versions with new features are expected to be limited to the new features.
To get the most solid version, get the highest 3-digit number, i.e. a bug fix. If you already run a version in that series and a new bug fix is released, see CHANGES to determine if it is worthwhile to upgrade. Most bugs so far have been relevant only when using lists in very unusual ways or with rarely used options.
All recent versions of ezmlm-idx also include pre-compiled RPMs.
ezmlmrc(5) files contain some release-specific configurations. Do not use a later file (other than from bug fix releases) with an earlier version of the programs. It is usually OK to use a version from an earlier package (see UPGRADE), but some new functionality may nor be available.
To contribute a new language, make a copy of the lang/en_US directory from the latest package, edit the files, and send the resulting files to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please leave comments intact and in English and do not change the order of items in the file. This will facilitate maintenance.
