Description Peter Putzer 2017-05-03 17:03:41 UTC
I'm not sure how this happens, but the rc.d script of the port returns the exit code 0 for the command `service fetchmail status` even when the daemon is not running (even though the echo output "fetchmail is not running" is correct).

Maintainer feedback?

It is a bit more complicated because there can be either a global fetchmail running for all users or an instance of fetchmail for each user.  I can fix the single-user case, not the multiple users' one.
