Hi folks, This is my first time on the mailing list, so here's a brief intro. My name is Philip Ward. I'm one of the Unix admins at the University of Stirling in central Scotland. I've been doing this for nearly two months, previously having been a developer doing all sorts of things from Unix daemons to embedded C on microcontrollers with some Oracle and Visual stuff in between. I've been a Unix user since 1992 and a GNU/Linux home user since 1998, having started hacking since receiving a BBC Micro in 1983. I used to use Rolodap 0.9 at home. It was a pain to setup, but a joy to use once working. When I moved things around at home I tried to install Rolodap on the new server, but gave up and instead got ldap-abook working, and am still using it at home. My interest in Rolodap was rekindled when a friend asked me for a contacts database that supported contact categorisation. I reckoned that Rolodap was what he needed. I spent a bit more time trying to beat Rolodap into submission and finally got it working. This friend wants a searchable email audit trail, so I may end up adding this functionality into Rolodap and sending in the patches. If anyone has any ideas on how to add this then I'd love to hear them. I'm thinking that the best way would be to make Rolodap do ALL the emailing (so remove the mailto: link from contact display and send all emails through the rolodap email client) and then record all transactions in the directory. Another way of doing it (probably more complex but will enable users to use their preferred email client) would be to launch the default email client but add rolodap@... in the cc list. A mail reader could then received the message and feed it into the directory. Whaddya think? Right, now for a wee gift. I noticed that Mailing list generation is broken. Rolodap generates the files in the temp directory (/var/www/rolodap/temp/ in my case) but when you then click to download the file it passes /var/www/rolodap/temp/filename.csv to the browser when it should pass http://host.domain/rolodap/temp/filename.csv to the browser. The attached patch adds TEMPURL to rolodap.conf and uses TEMPURL in generating the url for the file download. Please accept my apologies if this has already been fixed in CVS.
