  1. Bump the PKGREVISION for all packages which depend directly on perl,

    seb committed Aug 21, 2010
    to trigger/signal a rebuild for the transition 5.10.1 -> 5.12.1.
    The list of packages is computed by finding all packages which end
    up having either of PERL5_USE_PACKLIST, BUILDLINK_API_DEPENDS.perl,
    or PERL5_PACKLIST defined in their make setup (tested via
    "make show-vars VARNAMES=..."), minus the packages updated after
    the perl package update.
    sno@ was right after all, obache@ kindly asked and he@ led the
    way. Thanks!

  1. Update grepmail to 5.30. Now requires p5-Mail-Mbox-MessageParser>=1.20.

    snj committed Jun 23, 2004
    New in version 5.30:
    - Updated t/recursive.t to work better when there are version control
      directories in t/mailboxes/directory.
    - Updated t/invalid_mailbox.t to be more robust.
    - Fixed a bug in t/invalid_mailbox.t for Solaris.
    - -F now works again
    - Changed incorrect "-h" to "--help" in two error messages.
    - Now correctly handles DOS-style line endings in mailboxes.
    - Changed single dates so that they are treated as inferred spans, instead of
      a single day. For example "2004" now means "between Jan 1 2004 and Jan 1
      2005" instead of "between Jan 1 2004 and Jan 2 2004".

    * Fixed filename output for -n, -m and other situations when input comes
      from standard input.
    * Added -w flag to match word boundaries.
    * A warning is now issued and caching is disabled if -C is not specified
      and $HOME is not set (as might be the case when running grepmail in a
      cron job).

  1. Updated grepmail to 5.22.

    grant committed Dec 18, 2003
    Major changes since 5.00:
    New in version 5.22:
    - X-Mailfolder header no longer has a line number when -n is used. (bugfix by
      Kevin Pfeiffer <>)
    - New -B flag prints abbreviated headers (initial patch by Kevin Pfeiffer
    - Headers spanning multiple lines are now printed correctly in warnings and
    - Fixed a spurious warning which would be printed if caching was not enabled.
    - grepmail will now disable caching if the caching version of
      Mail::Mbox::MessageParser can not be loaded, instead of exiting.
    New in version 5.21:
    - Fixed line ending bugs under MS-DOS/Windows.
    New in version 5.20:
    - Added speed testing to the distribution
    - Fixed Makefile.PL so that test modules would not be installed.
    - Changed testing to use PERLRUN instead of FULLPERLRUN, which is not
      available with older versions of MakeMaker that ship with older versions of
      Perl. (Thanks to Ed Avis <> for catching this.)
    - Fixed interactive installation problems. (Thanks to Joey Hess
      <> for catching this (again).)
    - Fixed broken searching of $HOME/mail, $HOME/Mail, and $HOME/Mailbox
      directories when a mail folder can not be found. Changed $MAIL to $MAILDIR
      since $MAIL usually points to the user's inbox. (Bug found and initial patch
      by Peter Cordes <>.)
    - Cache file permissions are now set to protect against prying eyes. (Patch by
      Joey Hess <>)
    - The user can now specify the cache file location with the -C flag.
    - Fixed compatibility problems with perl 5.005_01
    New in version 5.10:
    - Extracted mail parsing into the new Mail::Mbox::MessageParser module.
    - Fixed small performance loss bugs in short-circuit matching of headers which
      were introduced in the last version
    - Fixed some uses of uninitialized values (Originally reported by Ed Avis
    - Improved performance a bit.
    - The Makefile.PL now uses the default values when run non-interactively.
    - Caching is now enabled by default. (It's no longer experimental.) Users can
      disable it during installation.
    - Date specifications without times (e.g. "today") are interpreted as midnight
      of the given day instead of the current time of that day. grepmail now
      relies on Date::Manip to handle this--users must upgrade Date::Manip to get
      this support. (Thanks to Reuben Thomas <> for working with
      Sullivan Beck <> to get TodayIsMidnight added to
      Date::Manip. Original bug report by Philip Douglass
    - Restructured test cases
Commits on Jul 12, 2003
  1. Update grepmail to 5.00

    zuntum committed Jul 12, 2003
    - grepmail is now orders of magnitude faster for mailboxes which have very
      large (>30MB) emails in them
    - "grep" is now used to find the start of emails, if it is installed. For
      mailboxes with large emails in them, this can speed things up by about 5x.
    - Reduced memory consumption by about 3 times.
    - -- now marks the end of options and the beginning of folders (Thanks to
      Reuben Thomas <> for the idea.)
    - -f now reads patterns from a file like GNU grep does. (Feature suggestion by
    - Added smail compatibility. (Thanks to Roy <> for the patch.)
    - The "**" prefix on warnings has been changed to "grepmail:"
    - Date specifications without times (e.g. "today") are interpreted as midnight
      of the given day instead of the current time of that day. (Bugfix and
      initial patch by Reuben Thomas <>.)
    - Fixed -i when used with -Y--it was always case sensitive. (Bugfix by Michael
      C. Toren <>)
    - Updated t/functionality.t to avoid running gzip-related test cases when gzip
      is not installed on the system.
    - Improved some error messages so that they prepend "grepmail: " as they
    - Cleaned up some warnings about ambiguous hash values (Thanks to Philip
      Douglass <> for pointing them out in a bug report.)
    - Added a warning about the version of perl required for new pattern features
      (Thanks to Philip Douglass <> for the bug report.)
    - -t flag is now -j
    - Fixed broken Gnus support
    - Improved test case for Gnus

  1. Update to 4.91, from PR 19944 by Adrian Portelli.

    wiz committed Jan 20, 2003
    New in version 4.91:
    - Added missing dependency for Storable.
    - Storable now only necessary if you plan on using caching
    - Fixed a bug in test case 83
    - Changed -s to support "<", ">", "<=", ">=" and "-". (Feature suggestion by
      Jens Schleusener)
    New in version 4.90:
    - Made Mail::Folder::SlowReader object-oriented
    - Removed FastReader from distribution. (It's no longer faster! Also, I
      couldn't integrate it easily with the new object-oriented reader design.)
    - Fixed a bug where in some cases emails were not being converted to mbox
      format before being printed
    - Made searches involving header-related constraints a bit faster
    - Added missing documentation for -F flag
    - Added -f flag to search based on message status. (Feature suggestion by
      Richard D Alloway)
    - Fixed a bug where -X and -Y flags after a pattern would not be processed
    - Added experimental caching capability, which is perhaps 5% slower the first
      time you run grepmail on a mail folder, and 10-20% faster on subsequent
      runs. The cache is stored in ~/.grepmail-cache. You must edit the grepmail
      file and set $USE_CACHING to true to use this feature. (Idea and initial
      patch by terry jones)
    New in version 4.81:
    - Fixed incompatibilities with older (5.005_03) versions of Perl
    - Fixed test cases which fail on operating systems (shells?) which emit
      "Broken Pipe" to standard output. I'd rather break the pipe than have
      grepmail gobble megabytes of data when it can't handle it.
    - Added --version flag (patch by Gerald Pfeifer)
    - Added documentation for -V flag.

    New in version 4.80:
    - Added prototype -E flag to support complex searches. (Thanks to Nelson Minar
      <> for the original suggestion in Sep 2000, And terry jones
      <> for seconding the idea.)
    - Added -F flag to force processing of files which grepmail determines are not
      mailboxes. (feature suggested by terry jones <>)
    - Documentation updated to reflect that -B no longer exists. (By terry jones
    - The test to determine if a file is a mailbox was improved to adhere better
      to RFC 822, while still providing some flexibility. (Initial suggestion and
      patch by terry jones <>)
    - Improved date extraction to also look at the 'From ' line when both the
      Received and Date headers fail. (patch by terry jones <>)
    - Fixed a long-standing bug in which filenames of compressed mailboxes which
      contained special shell characters would cause problems. (Thanks to Jost
      Krieger <> for giving me the kick in the pants
      to finally fix this.)
    - Fixed a long-standing bug in which grepmail would incorrectly report the
      filename of compressed mailboxes in error messages. (Thanks to Jost Krieger
      <> for giving me the kick in the pants to
      finally fix this.)
    New in version 4.72:
    - 20% speed improvement in the Perl mailbox parser (By terry jones
    - Fixed a number of potential bugs in command line processing and date
      processing. (By terry jones <>)
    - Cleaned up return values and use of quotes in the code. (By terry jones
    - Fixed a bug in -X signature processing (By terry jones <>)
    - Modified anonymize_mailbox to anonymize To: and Subject: in the header.
      (Thanks to terry jones <> for the idea.)
    - Fixed a bug in FastReader where emails less than 255 characters in size
      would occasionally cause a core dump. (Thanks to terry jones
      <> for submitting a bug report and sample mailbox.)
    - Made "big" test mailboxes 4 times bigger for more meaningful speed tests
    New in version 4.71:
    - Fixed warning about SIGHUP on Windows.
    - Fixed -u functionality for emails without the Message-Id header. (Thanks to
      Felix E. Klee <> for finding the bug.) NOTE: grepmail will
      use Digest::MD5 to compute a hash for the email header. If you don't have
      Digest::MD5, grepmail will just store the header. So, the default tradeoff
      is time for space.
    - Fixed a bug in the test script. (Thanks to Joey Hess <> for
      finding and fixing the bug.)
    - Extended workaround for spurious warning about undefined variable to Perl
      5.8. (Thanks to Joey Hess <> for reporting the ongoing
    New in version 4.7:
    - Fixed signal handling to make grepmail easier to debug. Thanks to Ilya
      Zakharevich for providing the solution.
    - Fixed a possible performance problem in reading of emails (Perl
      implementation), and documented the settings in the README.
    - Expanded the pattern for matching the start of emails to allow different
      types of emails to be parsed.
    - Fixed a bug where -R was reported as not recognized. (Thanks to Nicholas
      Riley <> for the bug report and fix.)
    - "anonymize_mailbox" utility included to help people submit bug reports
    - If a mailbox can not be found, grepmail now searches the $home/mail,
      $home/Mail, $home/Mailbox directories (or the directory specified by the
      MAIL environment variable). (Thanks to Michael Friendly <>
      for the feature suggestion and initial patch.)
    - Added -X flag to allow the user to specify a pattern for the signature
      separator. (Thanks to Michael Friendly <> for the feature
    - Added -Y flag to search specific headers. (Thanks to Terry Jones
      <> for the idea to automatically wrap header lines as
    New in version 4.60:
    - Removed -B flag and added -S flag. -B is now performed using -bS.
    - Added installation flags to suppress interactive installation. (Thanks to
      Joey Hess <> for the problem report. He had to patch
      Makefile.PL for his Debian packaging.)
    - Fixed a slow implementation of searching for signatures that would cause
      grepmail to crawl for very large emails. Thanks to Joey Hess
      <> for discovering the inefficiency.
    - Fixed a short-circuit which should have bypassed the search for signatures
      if -B was not specified. Thanks to Joey Hess <> for finding
      the bug.
    - Implemented a new Perl parser which is 5% to 50% faster depending on how
      I/O-bound your system is.
    - Restructured the code a bit and improved detection of invalid arguments.
    New in version 4.51:
    - grepmail now dies gracefully when invalid patterns like 'strcpy(' are
      supplied. (It should be 'strcpy\('.)
    - Fixed a bug in attachment boundary matching which would cause the boundary
      match to fail if the boundary contained special pattern matching characters.
      (Thanks to Richard Everson <rme at> for identifying
      the bug, and providing a sample email which demonstrates the problem.)
    - Added a check for Inline 0.41 or better during "perl Makefile.PL" when
      Mail::Folder::FastReader is selected to be installed. (Thanks to Brian L.
      Johnson <> for the problem report.)
    - Fixed a bug where grepmail would fail to print matching emails which had
      signatures, and added a test case for it. This bug was introduced with -B
      support in version 4.49.  (A *huge* thanks to Moritz Barsnick
      <> for reporting the bug and doing the initial analysis of
      the cause.)
    - Modified Makefile.PL to ask whether the user wants FastReader regardless of
      whether they specified arguments to "make Makefile.PL".
    - Modified Makefile.PL to allow the user to interactively specify the
      installation path.
    - Fixed a typo in debugging output for emails without "Date:" headers.
    - Improved error messages.
    - Usage message now displays just the flags, --help shows a summary of their
      meanings as well.
    New in version 4.50:
    - Added X-Draft-From to support newer versions of Gnus (Thanks to Nevin Kapur
      <> for the patch).
    New in version 4.49:
    - Fixed test cases to work around PATH modifications made by Date::Manip
    - Added -B to search the body but not the signature. (Thanks to Helmut
      Springer <> for the feature request.)
    - Added LICENSE file. (Thanks to Janet Casey <> for the
    New in version 4.48:
    - Mail::Folder::FastReader migrated from XS to Inline.
    - -H flag added by Nevin Kapur <>
    - Error messages are localized in test cases. (Thanks to cpan-testers and in
      particular Jost Krieger <> for finding this
      bug and diagnosing it.)
    - Fixed a problem with timezones in the test cases. (Thanks to Roy Lanek
      <> for helping me debug this.)
    - Added a check in the test cases for determining if the user's timezone is
      not recognized by Date::Manip.
    New in version 4.47:
    - Grepmail now converts Gnus emails into mbox emails before printing them.
      (Thanks to Johan Vromans <> for supplying a patch and
      explaining the need for it.
    - Fixed a couple bugs in -M processing
    - -M is now 19% faster. (It's now only about 9% slower than without -M.)
    New in version 4.46:
    - Fixed a bug in -u message id processing. (Thanks go to an anonymous bug
      reporter on SourceForge.)
    - Added more workarounds to prevent warnings resulting from a bug in Perl 5.6
      (Thanks to Joey Hess <>)
    - Added -Z flag to tell grepmail not to use Mail::Folder::FastReader even if
      it is installed.
    - Fixed a bug introduced in version 4.44 where -m would not work unless used
      with -n. (Thanks to Imre Simon <> for catching this.)
    - --help anywhere on the command line now causes the help to be printed,
      instead of only when used as the first argument.
    - Test script now exercises both the Mail::Folder::FastReader and perl mailbox
      implementations as appropriate.
    - Restructured code to separate out Perl mailbox implementation as
      Mail::Folder::SlowReader. (This module is embedded in the grepmail script.)

    bad committed Feb 10, 2001
    The package has moved to Sourceforge.
    Changes since 4.11:
    New in version 4.45:
    - Added -n and -V to usage message. (Thanks to Wolfgang Rohdewald
      <> for catching this.)
    - Added workarounds to prevent warnings resulting from a bug in Perl 5.6
    - A blank line before the start of an email is not required now. This
      allows broken folders created by Netscape to be read. (Thanks to Jeremy
      Malcolm <> for the bug report.)
    New in version 4.44:
    - execution with -M flag now 35% faster
    - Added a Mail::Folder::FastReader module which can cause grepmail to
      run 10-40% faster, depending on your system. Since this module is
      experimental, the installation script will allow you to not install
      the module. A C compiler is required.
    - "-----Original Message-----" now recognized as beginning an included
    - Fixed a bug where errors would not be displayed if compressed data
      was piped to grepmail
    - Date::Parse is now only required if -d is used. (Date::Manip is
      still only required if you use complex date specfications.) (Thanks
      to Richard Stallman <> for pointing this out.)
    - Added -n flag to print line numbers a la grep. (Thanks to Richard
      Stallman <> for the suggestion)
    - Fixed a bug in debug output where the email subject was actually the
    - Fixed an undefined value in the printing of flag information
    - An ASCII file is now determined to be a mailbox if it has a line
      whose prefix is 'From' or 'X-From-Line:', and another line whose
      prefix is 'Received ', 'Date:', 'Subject:', 'X-Status:', or
    - Error exits now return 1 (Thanks to Wolfgang Rohdewald
      <> for the bug report)
    - -V flag prints the version (Thanks to Wolfgang Rohdewald
      <> for the feature request)
    - Restructured code: localized reading of the emails from the file,
      removed two functions
    New in version 4.43:
    - Fixed a bug in -r counting when used with -h. (Thanks to Andrew
      <> for the bug report.)
    - Fixed a bug in the handling of included messages. (Thanks to Antoine
      Martin <> for the bug report and suggestion
      for the fix.)
    New in version 4.42:
    - Added -a flag to use received date instead of sent date for -d matches.
      (Thanks to Michael Liljeblad <liljeblad at> for the
    - Included emails are now ignored properly (Thanks to an anonymous submittor
      for the bug report and part of a patch
    - If an email has no date, the -d switch now issues a warning and does not
      treat the email as a match (Thanks to David Blaine <blained at> for the bug report.)
    - -d "" can be used to find emails without dates
    - Mailbox files are now detected as files using
      if ($buffer =~ /^(X-From-Line:|From) /im && $buffer =~ /^Subject: /im)
      rather than
      if ($buffer =~ /^(X-From-Line:|From) /im && $buffer =~ /^Date: /im)
    - Improved detection of binary files. (Thanks to Dan Sugalski
      <> for the sample code.)
    - STDERR and STDOUT now checked separately during "make test"
    - Headers can now be in the format "Date:<tab>" in addition to "Date: "
      (Thanks to Benjamin Korvemaker <korvemaker at> for the
      patch and concept.)
    New in version 4.41:
    - Support for Gnus-style mail files added (Thanks to Werner Bosse
      <> for the patch.)
    - Test mail files tweaked to make the test cases work better across all time
      zones. (Thanks to Andreas Kutschera <> for
      the patch.)
