Package: newsclipper
Version: 1.28-1
Severity: normal

With a simple input file:

<!-- newsclipper
<input name=slashdot>

NewsClipper fails to download the slashdot handler.  If I download all
the handlers by hand, and untar them into the right place, NewsClipper
runs fine, but adds annoying messages at the end:

<!-- News Clipper error message:
The following errors occurred while executing the handler "limit" with this
sequence of commands: Couldn't determine if there is a newer bugfix update
version of limit available because the server is down. Try again in a while,
and send email to bugreport@newsclipper.com if the problem persists.

In terms of use, this is pretty minor, I guess.  Presumably this means
that they've made some gratuitous change to the URIs *again*.

While looking through the newsclipper mailing list archive, I noticed
the following message:


A discussion follows, in which people figure out that downgrading their
version fixes this particular problem. This only happened with version
1.28. Since new versions have come out since, and no one has mentioned
this bug again, I believe that it is fixed. In addition, v1.29 and
v1.30, have a few bugfixes in relation to error management, and timeout
problems, which is probably what was causing the bug.
