Hi Jules,
	Nice to see you're back. You can't actually legally upload
Balsa yet. Much to my horror when I was repackaging Balsa 2, I
discovered that Balsa had no OpenSSL exclusion clause in its
license. Balsa was also indirectly linking to OpenSSL via the ESMTP
libraries as well. So in fact, the current Balsa package in Debian is
actually violating the GPL!
	Thankfully, I've managed to persuade Balsa-devel to add an
OpenSSL exclusion clause to their license in their 2.0.4 release which
is due sometime before Christmas. Until then, feel free to look over
the work I did during your absence [1].

Yours sincerely,
Andrew "Netsnipe" Lau
