Debian Bug report logs - #489027
wrong command in mail servers' reference card

Package: www.debian.org; Maintainer for www.debian.org is Debian WWW Team <debian-www@lists.debian.org>;

Reported by: Luciano Bello <luciano@debian.org>

Date: Wed, 2 Jul 2008 21:18:22 UTC

Severity: minor

Done: David Prévot <taffit@debian.org>

Bug is archived. No further changes may be made.

Summary: but 'thank' is, and the elipsis alludes to the fact that other things can go there. The full and complete documentation for that command is in http://www.debian.org/Bugs/server-control#thanks anyway; the refcard probably should be changed to just list one and link directly there.

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: www.debian.org
Severity: minor

In the page http://www.debian.org/Bugs/server-refcard says:
"quit|stop|thank...|--..."

'thank...' is not a command for control@bugs.d.o

The line should be changed to
"quit|stop|thank|thanks|thankyou|thank you|--"

The three dots were actually supposed to represent a wildcard; I'm almost
certain that it meant that the regular expression was matching ^thank

I see in the code now that the expression is:

    if (m/^stop\s*$/i || m/^quit\s*$/i || m/^--\s*$/ || m/^thank(?:s|\s*you)?\s*$/i || m/^kthxbye\s*$/i) {

Yet, thinking about it, it doesn't seem like we should actually care
about all those forms, because they get silly real fast... the reference
card could easily just list a few essential forms (one word-based and one
signature-based).

but 'thank' is, and the elipsis alludes to the fact that other things
can go there. The full and complete documentation for that command is
in http://www.debian.org/Bugs/server-control#thanks anyway; the
refcard probably should be changed to just list one and link directly
