Bug#504080: ITP: courier-pythonfilter -- filter collection for the Courier MTA
I packaged courier-pythonfilter in the beginning of November and uploaded it
Thank you very much for your reply and the link! I'll take a look at
that source package tomorrow.
It is in pretty good shape, is lintian clean, and I've tested the build
process in an up-to-date sid pbuilder environment as well. I have also added
tiny man pages for pythonfilter and pythonfilter-quarantine as well as
written postinst and prerm scripts for starting and stopping the filter,
plus a few other things. Furthermore, I'm using dpatch to remove "shebangs"
where they are not appropriate.
It sounds very interesting for me. I didn't touch the Python sources,
only packaged them and also created postinst and prerm scripts. I'll
compare your work with mine and write to you, if I have any ideas how to
improve your package.
I filed a "request for sponsor" on the mentors list but nobody has shown
interest as of yet:
I'll give it a second try in a few weeks time.
Did you try to contact with Stefan Hornburg (Racke)? He is Debian
developer and maintaner of Courier packages for Debian. I wrote him
about my Pythonfilter package a few days ago, but I don't have any his
If you're a DD yourself, please consider sponsoring it. ;)
No, I'm not DD. Debian was my favourite Linux distro couple years ago.
Now I rather prefer Ubuntu for desktop and server and recently I've been
testing OpenSolaris on my laptop :)
