This is a small cron script that sends daily emails about reminders that will be due in the next 48h to the owner of the original ticket as well as the owner of the reminder.

Note - it requires the Date::Calc and Getopt::Long perl modules.


   #!/usr/bin/perl
   #
   # This script outputs all reminders that are due within a configurable period
   # of time and mails the result to the corresponding owners.

   # * 2015.12.11 - Gary Greene <ggreene AT minervanetworks DOT com>
   # - Turn taint back OFF. RT::I18N still causes perl to complain about insecure dependencies.

   # * 2015.12 - Gary Greene <ggreene AT minervanetworks DOT com>
   # - Bring code up to speed with the RT 4.2 API
   # - Turn taint back on. Seems to work after clearing out old API usage.
   #
   # * Old ChangeLog entries
   # - Restructured to allow cleaner execution flow
   # - Removed taint check as it does not work currently
   # - Fixed an old variable not defined
   # - Changed mail format (ticket id added)
   # - Getopt added for parameters: --debug --reminder --ticket --interval and
   #   --help
