Intel, Linux 2.4.2-2
If the mail agent used to send notification of edits to a
PR generates output then that output is forwarded to the
gnatsd client. This output is not expected by the client.
(For example, Gnatsweb returns to the user a page headed "Error" with the text "Unparseable reply from gnatsd".)
Add or edit the following line to the categories file:
test:*Test Category:gnats-admin:userone
Add the following lines to the responsible file:
userone:User number one:<bad email address>
Submit a PR in the test category.
Connect to the gnatsd server using a telnet client and perform any necessary authentication.
Issue the following commands:
repl <pr_number> State
212 Ok.
213 Ok, now send the field change reason.
/home/gnats/dead.letter... Saved message in /home/gnats/dead.letter
210 Ok.
Change the gnats/ source file to redirect
the standard output of the mail agent to /dev/null:

RCS file: /cvsroot/gnats/gnats/gnats/,v
