Subject: [PATCH 3/3] SubmittingPatches: remove pine-specific hints from MUA hints
Date: Wed, 12 May 2021 10:45:02 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <patch-3.3-9da5bc4a0c-20210512T084137Z-avarab@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cover-0.3-0000000000-20210512T084137Z-avarab@gmail.com>

Remove the whole section about configuring pine with
no-strip-whitespace-before-send.

There hasn't been a release of Pine since late 2005, in Alpine the
no-strip-whitespace-before-send switch is already the default.

This documentation was initially added in 9740d289ee7 (Update
SubmittingPatches to add MUA specific notes., 2005-08-26), at this
point it's safe to say that it's not useful to anyone anymore, let's
remove it.

-Ah, it looks like a recent version changed the default behavior to do the
-right thing, and inverted the sense of the configuration option. (Either
-that or Gentoo did it.) So you need to set the
-"no-strip-whitespace-before-send" option, unless the option you have is
-"strip-whitespace-before-send", in which case you should avoid checking
-it.
