[ resync-desc.patch ]

This patch changes allow-resync's description in eggdrop.conf.dist.
People have reported that they have had no problems related to this
feature and as noone seems to know why it was originally disabled,
I would like to revive it :)

If someone suddenly remembers why it was disabled and the problem
isn't fixed yet, please speak up.
