This file contains some default values that need to be known in order
send-pr to work properly. This file needs to be copied to
all hosts where
send-pr will be used.
If gnats was built with default options, the send-pr.conf
file should be placed in the /usr/local/etc/gnats directory.
However, if the option
--sysconfdir was used during building of
gnats, the send-pr.conf file resides at the location
given to this option.

send-prcan be set up to submit Problem Reports by e-mail. This is done by setting the
MAILPROGvariable to point to a mailer such as Sendmail. If
MAILPROGneeds to have the address that the mail is being sent to specified on the command line, it should be specified here as well (for example, MAILPROG=''mail firstname.lastname@example.org'' should work). If Sendmail is used, use MAILPROG=''/usr/lib/sendmail -oi -t''. See also
send-prcommunicates directly over the network with the gnats server to determine what fields to include in a correctly formatted Problem Report so that it can present the user with a template. If the gnats server can't be reached directly over the network, a template must be provided. Set the
TEMPLATEvariable to point to a template file created on the gnats server by using the command send-pr -p. See Installing the user tools.
