upgrade_shared_repository, - Migrating shared repository created by earlier versions

SYNOPSIS --list LISTNAME --robot DOMAIN --all_lists
    [ --fix_qencode ]

DESCRIPTION renames file names in shared repositories that may be incorrectly encoded because of previous Sympa versions.

  • As of Sympa 5.3a.8, file names in shared repository are Q-encoded, therefore made easier to store on any filesystem with any encoding.
  • As of Sympa 6.1b.5, Encoding of shared documents was not consistent with recent version of MIME::EncWords module: MIME::EncWords::encode_mimewords() used to encode characters "-!*+/". Now these characters are preserved, according to RFC 2047 section 5. We had to change encoding of shared documents according to new algorithm.


Specifies target list(s).
If specified, fixes Q-encoding changed on Sympa 6.1b.5. Otherwise, applies Q-encoding introduced by Sympa 5.3a.8.

HISTORY appeared as separate executable on Sympa 6.2.17.
