[16]30== Installation and Configuration ==
[5]31
[16]32First build, install email2trac :
[5]33
[51]34option 1:
35  * ./configure (see --help)
[24]36    {{{
37    default values for:
38       prefix=/usr/local        --> --prefix=<path>
39       exec_prefix=$prefix/bin  --> --exec_prefix=<path>
40       sysconfdir=$prefix/etc   --> --sysconfdir=<path>
41       MTA_USER=nobody          --> --with-mta_user=<name>
42       TRAC_USER=www-data       --> --with-trac_user=<name>
43    }}}
[16]44  * make
45  * make install
[24]46  * First install copy emailtrac.conf to $sysconfdir
[5]47
[51]48option 2:
49  * debian/rules binary
50  * First install copy emailtrac.conf to /etc
[9]51
[51]52After installation, edit email2trac.conf for your site. Most important
53parameter is project, see above
54
[16]55== Usage ==
56
[19]57It depends on your MTA how the setup is. For Sendmail and Postfix, the p
58rocedure is the same :
59 * Edit your alias definition file (default : /etc/aliases for Postfix,
60   /etc/mail/aliases for Sendmail) and add one line per project/component you
61   want to allow ticket submission from email to. For each alias, you can
62   specify option --project. This option selects a configuration stanza in the
63   config file and ''--component'' to specify a component other than the
64   default component for the project. Line must have the following format :
[16]65{{{
66     tracproj: |/usr/sbin/run_email2trac [--project=<project_name>] [--component=<project_component>]
67}}}
68
69  * Update your alias database with command ''newaliases''
[19]70  * Test with a command like :
[16]71{{{
[56]72     mail tracproj
[16]73}}}
