- slrn 1.0.3:
* A quoted-string in the display portion of an address was not
being marked as allowing mime-encoded text.
* After calling iconv to perform a character set conversion on an
article line, call it again with just the newline character.
This resets the state for some conversion types (UTF-7).
* Disable support for SSLv3, which is vulnerable to POODLE
attacks CVE-2014-3566 bsc#1031023
* The reject_long_lines option was not working as documented.
Setting it to 0 had no effect when netiquette_warnings was set
to a non-zero value.
* replace_article_with_mime_obj, also decode
* Add a file from the autoconf archive that detects libraries
needed for socket support.  The old method used X_EXTRA_LIBS,
which breaks if X in not installed.
* Added support for large (>2GB) files on 32 bit unix systems.
* Updated Danish translation
* If a mime message has already been base64/QP converted, do not
try to convert it again.
* Do not use SSL_CTX_set_options if gnutls is being used
* Use labs instead of abs for long integer
* Removed compilation date info for a reproducible build
* rfc1522_encode_word: max_nbytes was not being properly limit

- Added:
+ slrn-correct-path-to-sendmail.patch:  The ed stanza in %setup
is causing a buildfailure in openSUSE:Factory, and I don't
understand ed/regexp well enough to fix it that way.  Patching the
file directly seems to work fine.
