There is one small, but depending on the setup potentially deadly, error
in this version SHOULD you be using HOOKS WITH ARGUMENTS. If you do not
use any hook in ftpsync or runmirrors, you are safe and can stop reading

Basically, if one of your hook looks like
"/whatever/command some arguments to it"
you will notice that it will fail. To change this either pull the newest
git version or modify etc/common, line 198, and take away the "".

The reason for the "" was that I envisioned the hooks to always be a
script to call, which then does whatever is neccessary (which the
HOOKSCR variable name nicely shows too). But it is entirely valid to
have a hook look like

HOOK3="sudo -u user /srv/somewhere/bin/dofoo ${TO}"

and that obviously does not work with the "".

<mrvn> Anyone with a cdrw/dvdrw drive up for some crazy experiments? Ever
       noticed how the color changes when you burn something on a CD/DVD?
       Are there ways to control it? I want ISOPAINT: Paint pictures into an
       iso image visible after its burned to cd/dvd.
<doogie> interesting idea
<doogie> how long have you been off your medication?
