Email2tracMta documentation error in Test Setup

Reported by: Dennis McRitchie <dmcr@…> Owned by: bas
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: email2trac Version: 1.0.0
Keywords: Cc:


One of the recommended tests on the Email2tracMta page Test Setup section will not work, at least with certain versions of mail, sendmail, and python.

mail tracproj < msg.txt

results in the following traceback error:

Dec  5 !22:11:24 raas01 email2trac: Traceback (most recent call last):
Dec  5 !22:11:24 raas01 email2trac:   File "/usr/local/raas/email2trac-1.0.0/bin/email2trac", line 1610, in <module>     tktparser.parse(sys.stdin)
Dec  5 !22:11:24 raas01 email2trac:   File "/usr/local/raas/email2trac-1.0.0/bin/email2trac", line 902, in parse     m.replace_header('Subject', m['Subject'].replace('\r', '').replace('\n', ''))
Dec  5 !22:11:24 raas01 email2trac: AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'replace'

I believe this is due to the fact that msg.txt already has mailer headers. The other test (email2trac --project=tracproj < msg.txt) works, as do normal emails sent via the 'mail' utility.

  • Status changed from new to assigned
  • Type changed from defect to setup

the test message included in the package is only for testing emailtrac and not the MTA setup. To test this you have to type/send your own message.

I entirely agree. But the current documentation at in the "Test Setup" section (at the bottom of the page) specifically recommends trying "mail tracproj < msg.txt".

I suggest the documentation be corrected.

Good suggestion. It is a wiki ;-) Just replace the user: anonymous with another name. Else i will do it tomorrow.
