Bug#108942: ITP: cyrus2-imapd -- CMU Cyrus project mail system, version 2

Package: wnpp
Version: N/A; reported 2001-08-16
Severity: wishlist

I've found myself installing the newer cyrus imap system for a number of
entities that are porting their proprietary systems to libre software.

Well, the cyrus imapd packaged for Debian is quite old; while stable, it is
not being maintained upstream anymore, and lacks too many features (such as
strong crypto support).

I'll be packaging the complete Cyrus IMAP suite, sans Cyrus-murder, IMSP and
ACAP. Crypto will be included (and there will NOT be a version without
crypto), as will Sieve (server-side email filtering).

The package will, if at all possible, separate the various subsystems just
like the current cyrus-imapd package does.

Kerberos will not be present in the first versions of the package, and
unless someone shows up to help test it, support may never be included.
