Footnotes

(1)

If typing `M-x send-pr' doesn't work, see your system administrator for help loading `gnats.el' into Emacs.

(2)

Upgraders from older versions of GNATS should note that category directories are now created "on-the-fly" as needed by default.

(3)

This approach may seem heavy-handed, but it ensures that changes are not overwritten.

(4)

DES crypt is the standard password encryption format used by most UNIX systems

(5)

MD5 is only supported on platforms that have a crypt() function that supports MD5. Among others, this currently includes GNU Linux and OpenBSD.

(6)

Some systems support even more encryption methods. In FreeBSD, for instance, a prefix of `$2$' implies Blowfish encoding. GNATS will happily accept any encryption that the OS supports.
