If I wrote int a; int b; and in the next version int b; int a; that would be the same code with 4 lines of diff. And thats what we have here. The mentioned files are auto-generated stuff by flex and bison which is because the upstream author did an update from 2.5.4a to 2.5.33. For example: -} YYSTYPE; -/* Line 191 of yacc.c. */ -#line 320 "rcfile_y.c" +} +/* Line 193 of yacc.c. */ +#line 341 "rcfile_y.c" + YYSTYPE; Thats just one example for things making the diff big but the code didnt really change. imap.c and pop3.c is now one file (tls.c) is another example (150 lines). I talked with upstream about why the changes are that big. rc3 -> 6.3.6 has 11 * 660 changes in po/* files, a few additional html files from the mail-archive (380 lines) and 140 lines of news. Mailarchiv sind hinzugekommen, 380 Zeilen, 140 Zeilen an NEWS. pop3.c changes are that big because of the security fix was fairly voluminous. Besides this the changes are just a few. > > Sorry, could you please try to get single patches for the bugs fixed by > > the new upstream release, so that we have the option to route this > > through testing-proposed-updates? > > > We could but it wouldn't make a difference since we'll end up with the > same 6.3.6 final release.
