     + do not apply all the flock-patches

1 march 2001 Ivan Zakharyaschev <vanyaz at> 4.33L-ipl2mdk

       will return it back after some corrections
  • confvar, segfix, sparc patches not needed any more

    files before by concatenating them as whole files

    + set rsh-open-timeout to 0

17 november 2000 Ivan Z. <vanyaz at>

  • Almost all patches and icons bunzipped (that makes srpm's smaller!)
  • Structure and install procedure of additional sources re-organized

  • (RE) README.ipl gets fuller
  • the old pine.wmconfig added to docs (contrib/)

  • give up attempts setting the display charset automatically
  • our (RE) "path" and "build" patches absorbed similar new patches

7 november 2000 Ivan Z. <vanyaz at> 4.30-ipl1mdk

  • A patch from RH (an advanced substitute for the "DEBUG" patch
     (supplied by Trond Eivind Glomsrød <>)

     + merging with existed on install,
     + demonstrating new options

     + understands "windows-*" encoding names
     + has 7-bit KOI option
  • making docs (text and HTML)

3 november 2000 Ivan Z. <vanyaz at>

  • Bug fixed: pine now works with no DEBUG compiled in ("init" patch).

1 november 2000 Ivan Z. <vanyaz at>

  • The path patches, that were correcting the paths for Mandrake system
    (/var, /etc, no /usr/local), merged into one big patch with my additions.
    In fact, there were three of them: Lev's, RedHat's and "passwd"; I think
    the idea of patching in order to change the pathnames isn't good: better
    to write a script that would process the sources.
  • vfs patch re-made for pine4.30.
  • a small configuring patch made out of the old RedHat's patch (QUOTAS).

29 october 2000 Ivan Z. <vanyaz at>

     + rm -rf in build root not needed any more

  • Lev's patch splitted into two: recoding and path adaptations for Mdk filesystem.
