Subject: [PATCH] gnu: msmtp: Make it configurable with envrinoment variables

Add the support of following environment variables:
MSMTPQ_QUEUE_DIR
MSMTPQ_LOG
MSMTPQ_QUIET
MSMTPQ_CONN_TEST

Add new --enqueue option, which forces to enqueue message instead of
attempting to send it.

Make msmtpq quite by default for compatibility with emacs and use ping instead
of netcat for connection test.

Use binary absolute path in msmtpq and msmtp-queue scripts instead of relying
on the binary being present in the $PATH.

Thanks!

Did you send these patches upstream?

https://marlam.de/msmtp/contact/

In general, we don't patch packages to add features in Guix. We try to
stay close to what is offered by the upstream development team, except
for bug fixes.

Yes, just a few minutes ago.

Agree, --enqueue is a feature and probably doesn't belong to the PM
repo, the rest is more like a fix.  Ok, let's see, what Martin will
reply to proposed changes and I'll adjust this patch accordingly.

Thanks, let us know what happens. I use msmtp so I'm interested :)

It seems that this script is unmaintained and served as an example.
Martin also proposed to take the maintanance responsibility of it in the
other message, but I needed it only for testing and don't use it anymore
and thus don't want to take this duty.

However, the patches themselves still seems good to me and they can be
useful for other people.  So we can keep them downstream and provide a
little more flexible version of msmtpq script for guix users or close
this ticket and keep them only in that thread for the history)

The first one is a little more userfriendly IMO, the second one reduces
maintanance burden, which also is a good thing.

I'm ok with both options.  LMKWYT.
