more on lists.debian.org scripts
Cesar: you have been added to the debwww group on master.debian.org as of a
few minutes ago (thanks Joey :). You can now replace the old scripts with
the new ones. Please do it step by step, keep the old files somewhere, and
test your changes thoroughly before removing old files. See the
/org/lists.debian.org/README file, I've updated it a bit.
The updatemail script keeps failing (it is run from my crontab) with the
message below. I think it's due to the fact that I can't write to most files
in /org/lists.debian.org/www/debian-user-0008/ directory, but I'm not sure.
I've already asked the admins to fix those permissions, BTW. I've tried
touching the .lck file as Jay suggested, but it didn't help.
The warnings about /org/lists.debian.org/conf/ are due to my experiments
with *.rc file placement. How do I track down which file still has the wrong
path? (those files are now in /org/lists.debian.org/scripts/ directory)
Once these problems are resolved, I'll set the crontab MAILTO variable to
point to the -www mailing list. Cesar, be sure to subscribe to the list if
you haven't already.
