when attachments are sent with the message the MIME type multipart/mixed is
used. The body text is one part of the message with Content-Type: text/plain.
According to RFC 1521 in this case the Content-Type header for the part can be
left out, see an example in the RFC page 66. Emacs/Gnus does precisely this.
Unfortunately ezmlm cannot handle a part with an empty header section. The end
result is that whenever I send a message with an attachment to the list, the
message body is lost (it's there in the raw data but not marked as a part
anymore, ezmlm destroys the header section of the part). The recipients see
only the attachment, no text in the message body.
ezmlm violates RFC1521.
I attach a test message, twice, once sent directly to me, once through ezmlm.
The new RPM hasn't been installed onto netbeans.org, so this is still an issue.
I could install that RPM, or wait till we do the next upgrade. Either is fine
with me; installing an RPM is fairly painless, but this would be a new version
of ezmlm-idx, possibly with some changes besides the bug fix.
I don't think we need to do a new upgrade so close to a major upgrade.
But, I'd just like your verbal that you have seen this issue fixed in the newer
version (ie. the one that we are working with on SC1.0)
