Description Marcus Rückert 2017-12-01 23:01:42 UTC
rpm -q --scripts dovecot
preinstall scriptlet (using /bin/sh):
/usr/sbin/groupadd -r dovecot >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
/usr/sbin/useradd -g dovecot -s /bin/false -r -c "User for Dovecot imapd" -d /var/run/dovecot dovecot >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
/usr/sbin/useradd -g dovecot -s /bin/false -r -c "User for Dovecot login" -d /var/run/dovecot dovenull >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
# try to copy the default configuration.
# we fail silently if the dovecot-implementation package is not
# installed yet. This allows us to break a little build loop between
# dovecot and dovecotXY.
if [ ! -e /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf -a -e /usr/share/doc/packages/dovecot/example-config/dovecot.conf ] ; then
  # install default config
  echo "Did not find a /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf. copying default configuration"
  cp -na /usr/share/doc/packages/dovecot/example-config/* /etc/dovecot/
  # the chmod breaks the lda. lets use the more open permissions
  #chmod -Rv o= /etc/dovecot/


so yeah ... no config if installed without docs
Comment 1 Marcus Rückert 2017-12-02 18:36:16 UTC
best would probably to move the example config to /usr/share/dovecot/ together with the mkcert script ... and only have them as symlinks in the doc dir so that we dont break existing documentation.
