queue-pr - incoming mail control for GNATS


queue-pr [ -q | --queue ] [ -r | --run ] [ -f filename | --file=filename ] [ -m kbytes | --max-size=kbytes ] [ -d database | --database=database ] [ -h | --help ] [ -V | --version ]


`queue-pr -q' should run through a pipe(2V) via the mail aliases(5) mechanism to automati‐ cally place incoming bug reports in a queue directory for GNATS. Run `queue-pr -r' via cron(8) to periodically empty the GNATS queue, filing new bug re‐ ports in the database. Always use one of -q | --queue or -r | --run (but not both), in each call to queue-pr. These are mutually exclusive functions in order to avoid collisions.


-q, --queue Accept standard input as an incoming mail message, placing this message in an incrementally numbered file in the database subdirectory gnats-queue for future handling. -r, --run Redirect files from the database subdirectory gnats-queue to file-pr(8) which files and creates index entries for each. -f filename or --file=filename Treat filename as input rather than reading from standard input (used with the --queue option). -m kbytes, --max-size=kbytes Do not process messages larger than kbytes kilobytes in size. Files larger than the limit are left for human intervention. -d database or --database=databasename Used with the --queue or --run options, use the database named database rather than the database default or the database specified by the GNATSDB environment variable. -h, --help Displays a short usage message. -V, --version Displays the queue-pr version number.


The GNATSDB environment variable is used to determine which database to use. For a local database, it contains the name of the database to access. If GNATSDB is not set, the database named default is used.
