I feel that I ought to tell you all that recent changes to Hypermail (already in the CVS repository) includes:

  o Alisdair Davey <> Helped me point out     a bug in mprintf.c. It made the *printf() routines fail on %.*s     constructions. I am considering an upgrade of the mprintf stuff to     my newer "trio" stuff... This caused URL-ified email-adresses to get     really weird looking at times.

  o %f in the header/footer file gets replaced by the file name of the     generated HTML file.

Also a little clarification:

  Recent Hypermail versions are designed to allow ALL necessary configuration   to be made in the config file. You should *never* have to edit options.h   or any other source file to alter configurations. I know some docs still   say you should, but that's only because no one has updated them yet.

If you find anything that isn't configurable in the config file or with a command line flag but is possible to tweak in the source and you want to do just that config, please let me know!

I am still waiting for more bug reports. I was told by several persons that my recent versions are unstable. I need your mailboxes and config files that cause hypermail to crash so that I can correct those problems.
