debian-devel-changes IRC bot ============================ Requirements: * Python >= 2.4 * Beautiful Soup (python-beautifulsoup) * Supybot * Local MTA * lockfile-progs * python-btsutils Installation ------------ * Obtain a copy of the bot sources and place in an empty directory. We will refer to this dir as $SOURCE_DIR. * Ensure that - $SOURCE_DIR/bin/ is writable by the supybot user (so that it can create a FIFO) - $SOURCE_DIR/bin/lockfile/ is writable by your MTA * Create an email address which outputs mail directed to it to the STDIN of $SOURCE_DIR/bin/debian-devel-changes-bot.sh. Under Exim you can use the "pipe" transport for this. You should keep this email address secret so that 3rd-parties cannot inject specially crafted messages onto the channel. * Configure a Supybot instance using the "supybot-wizard" command. You are recommended to run this in the "bot-config" directory under $SOURCE_DIR (it will be ignored by the revision control system). * Add "$SOURCE_DIR/plugin" to the "supybot.directories.plugins" directive in your ".conf" file. * Run supybot $SOURCE_DIR/bot-config/<conffile>.conf to start the bot. * Call the following for every channel you wish the bot to emit change notices: !channel <#channel> supybot.plugins.DebianDevelChanges.show_changes True * Subscribe the bot to the following lists: - http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-changes/ - http://lists.debian.org/debian-bugs-dist/ - http://lists.debian.org/debian-bugs-closed/ - http://lists.debian.org/debian-security-announce/ - http://lists.backports.org/mailman/listinfo/backports-changes * Configure the bot to start on bootup: @reboot supybot --daemon $SOURCE_DIR/bot-config/<conffile>.conf * (Optional) Disable spam checking for messages sent to the bot
