Sounds good, shall i implement it?


I was wondering ... wouldn't it be better if cfagent -z was an
interactive command which, when given a variable name would return
its value (possibly prefixed by the number of characters it was
sending, for ease of parsing). This way, only Cfexecd needs to be
changed to do something like this.

BTW, if you choose not to go for this (and I'm willing to code the
generic interface) I added some cruft at around cfexecd.c:432 which
copes with old cfagents who didn't send EmailMaxLines. Since you're
in the area, I'd be obliged if you removed the compatibility code if
it's not too much bother.


Sorry but i do not understand it. Do you mean:
   # cfagent -z sysadm
   12:address@hidden

   # cfagent -z smtpfrom
   16:address@hidden

In this situation we still need to change cfagent.c and cfexecd.c to support new variables.

I have made a patch against 2.0.7p3 (debian). It is a simple patch, but
if we choose another approach is fine for me. The patch now behaves as
follows if NO 'smtpfrom' variable is set it uses the default one:
        cfengine@<FQDN>

I am now in the testing fase ;-)
