Summary: superfluous followup-to header if article is posted
into only one newsgroup
Version: 4.4 pre
Platform: openSUSE RPMs
AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs at kde.org
ReportedBy: diedrich.ehlerding at t-online.de
Version: 4.4 pre (using KDE 4.6.0)
If an article shall be posted only into one single newsgroup, knode adds a
superfluous header line "Followup-To" containing that very same newsgroup.
However, in thios case, the Followup-To header line should be omitted. Previous
versions of knode (0.9.x, 0.10.x ) didnt contain that bug.
This is not only cosmetic; it is a violation of RFC 5336 stating
| [...] The
| Followup-To header field SHOULD NOT appear in a message, unless its
| content is different from the content of the Newsgroups header field.
Steps to Reproduce:
post an article into just one single group
omit the Followup-To header line if only one newsgroup is affected
