Subject Problems with GNATS..?
Date Tue, 22 Apr 1997 09:42:33 GMT
    Has anyone else noticed that the apache-bugdb mail for some PRs
    seems to include garbled text?  It seems to be happening
    specifically with Paul's responses in GNATS (at least I haven't
    noticed with anyone elses, and not even all of his).  It's almost as
    if newlines are being treated as CRs, and overwriting the line from
    the beginning.  (In fact, as I was including this, I actually
    managed to *spot* it doing this.)  For example, in

>State-Changed-By: pcs

    (I substituted for the actual CR characters; the problem was obvious
    when editing the text.)

    Is this something we should change the bugdb script to fix?  (E.g.,
    "tr/\r/\n/")  Or just ask Paul to "don't do that"? ;->
