Enhancements

Module dialout: more vregistry support

The module was only exporting few variables, so it was barely possible to configure a PPP setup from the virtual registry. Also, it was not possible to change the password. In interactive mode, the user is asked to type the password twice, but this feature is meaningless in virtual registry mode. The test for second password equality is skipped in this mode.

Module mailconf: /etc/mail/sendmail.ct

/etc/mail/sendmail.ct generally contains the list of trust users (users allowed to fake the return address, such as mailing list operators).

The mailconf module does not handle this file, but if it exists, it generates a sendmail.cf using it.

Module status: lsof front end

The module presents the list of currently opened files. You can browse and setup filters. This is work in progress.

Module usersbygroup: adding users

The module has a new privilege. You can grant separately the ability to manage user accounts in some groups and the ability to add accounts in those groups.

For each group, you can set/unset a check-box to enable account creation. The check-box has precedence over the privilege.

Bug fixes

Module mailconf: alias co-manager

When editing a user account, there is a section driven by the mailconf module. It allows you to redirect email for this user to another destination and it allows you to register this user in various aliases (mailing lists).

The module was doing some sanity check and had a flaw. For example, it was checking if you were simply attempting to redirect the user emails to ... the user, which was pointless. Pointless unless you redirect it somewhere else. It is valid to redirect email for user Joe another place (joe@somewhere.com) and still deliver it in the local mailbox. This is done by entering "joe joe@somewhere.com)

In some case, the module was confused and was rejecting your entry claiming that you were simply redirecting email to itself.

Anyway: fixed!

Module mailconf: vacation

The vacation was complaining in some condition if the vacation message was missing.

When creating a new account with a vacation text, the file was created with the wrong name.

There were also some spelling errors.

Text UI: screen trashed after help

When you visited the help selection menu and cancel, the screen was all broken. Fixed!
