Description From 2002-12-29 20:58:24
webalizer should be somewhat modified to send mail to webmaster@ by default, or
\"webalizer: webmaster\" alias should be added to default postfix
aliases file.

2 ldv: is it reasonable to alias webalizer to webmaster in /etc/aliases or
should I add[/remove?] the alias in package scripts?

(the Call For Policey continues...)

Please don't mix webalizer issues and policy issues. 
------- Comment #4 From 2003-09-10 19:55:31 -------
the latter arose from the former (again), that's why.

seems webalizer will be the next bug squashing party objective for me though. :-]

OK.  So do you add "webalizer: root" line to stock /etc/postfix/aliases
(sendmail... exim... ugh) or do I do it in %post after pre-existance check?
------- Comment #6 From 2006-02-17 16:16:19 -------
Дим, как у нас принято добавлять алиасы в пакетах?
webalizer: root надо.
------- Comment #7 From 2006-02-17 17:48:28 -------
А как в мире принято это делать?

Вообще баг INVALID, но эффект будет исправлен в 2.01.10-alt7 иначе:

# The Quiet option suppresses output messages... Useful when run
# as a cron job to prevent bogus e-mails.  Values can be either
# "yes" or "no".  Default is "no".  Note: this does not suppress
# warnings and errors (which are printed to stderr).
#
# ALT: quiet by default, as cronjob is set up by default;
# if you need the output emailed then please add "webalizer: root"
# ro /etc/aliases and run newaliases command

Quiet           yes
