Re: default MTA for sarge
I'll step out of lurk mode for a moment.
Sebastian Kapfer is on permanent record as saying:
:Another random idea from my misguided brain: Maybe there should be
:separate exim packages: exim4-local (which is the MTA automatically
:installed by dependencies) and exim4 (which a sysadmin in need of an MTA
:would install). The two could share the binaries and only provide
:different maintainer scripts.
We can take this idea an extra half step.
Configuration would be predefined to provide only local mail routing.
Configuration would be based on debconf.
Having said that, I'm not sure if I like the idea of separating software
from the configuration, but I wanted to let the idea out for discussion.
