       queue-pr - incoming mail control for GNATS

       queue-pr  [ -q | --queue ] [ -r | --run ]
                 [ -f filename | --file=filename ]
                 [ -d directory | --directory=directory ]

       `queue-pr -q' should run through a pipe(2V) via the mail aliases(5)
       mechanism to automatically place incoming bug reports in a queue
       directory for GNATS.

       Run `queue-pr -r' via cron(8) to periodically empty the GNATS queue,
       filing new bug reports in the database.

       Always use one of [ -q | --queue ] or [ -r | --run ] (but not both), in
       each call to queue-pr.  These are mutually exclusive functions in order
       to avoid collisions.

       -q, --queue
                 Accept standard input as an incoming mail message, placing this
                 message in an incrementally numbered file in the directory
                 /var/gnats-db/gnats-queue for future handling.

       -r, --run Redirect files from the directory /var/gnats-db/gnats-queue to
                 file-pr(8) which files and creates index entries for each.

       -f filename or --file=filename
                 Treat filename as input rather than reading from standard input
                 (used with the --queue option).

       -d directory or --directory=directory
                 Used with the --queue option, file incoming messages into
                 directory rather than /var/gnats-db/gnats-queue.

                 Used with the --run option, operate on the files in directory
                 rather than /var/gnats-db/gnats-queue.
