I've already packaged it, and well, ezmlm_xx.orig.tar.gz size is
~60 KB, and ezmlm_xx.diff.gz ~300 KB! :)

I hadn't tried it, Bruce said we should forget bothering him... and
I've read the threads about licensing in djb-qmail list and yes, it
is difficult to change Dan's mind...
: I really hate the idea of ending up with loads of *-src packages, so if anyone
: has a better suggestion I'd like to hear it.
What I've done is package it as usual but upload only the source
package. I'm open to suggestions :)
: Cheers, Phil.
BTW: What about ucspi-tcp? Are you working in it? If not, I can
upload the private package I'm using with rbl support.
