New posting-account attribute in Injection-Info for CURRENT

Hi all,

In CURRENT (INN 2.6.0), a new parameter is now available in inn.conf:

When set to true, the Injection-Info: header field contains an additional
posting-account attribute that mentions the username assigned to the
user at connection time or after authentication.  The default value
for this parameter is false.

I know that some of the readers of this list use Perl filters to obfuscate
the contents of the Injection-Info: header fields, especially the posting-host
If you want, you can add the posting-account attribute and obfuscate it
the same way you do with the posting-host.


If authenticated as the user "julien" (AUTHINFO):

Injection-Info:; posting-account="julien"; posting-host="";
	logging-data="4543"; mail-complaints-to="abuse at ..."

If sending a post via inews (for which the connection matches the user "<localhost>" set by an access block in readers.conf):

Injection-Info:; posting-account="<localhost>"; posting-host="localhost.localdomain:";
	logging-data="5458"; mail-complaints-to="abuse at ..."
