Subject: [iptables PATCH 1/7] iptables: install iptables-apply script and manpage
Date: Wed, 04 Dec 2019 19:17:53 +0100
Message-ID: <157548347377.125234.12163057581146113349.stgit@endurance> (raw)

From: Laurence J. Lane <>

We have the iptables-apply script in the tree (and in the release tarball), but
is not being installed anywhere. Same for the manpage.

Arturo says:
 I'm not a strong supporter of this script, but there are many users of it, so
 better do things right and do a proper installation.
 This patch is forwarded from the iptables Debian package, where it has been
 around for many years now.
