Re: Bug#457318: ITP: qmail -- a secure, reliable, efficient, simple message transfer agent

I sent a patch to qmail-src to build both 'qmail' AND 'qmail-ldap' packages.
This patch SHOULD be in the BTS. If not, I'm happy to remake it (my source
package build both these binary packages so...).

There are times where qmail-ldap is to much (on hosts where a smart host
is used for example) and there I use the 'simple' qmail package. On mail
servers, I use the qmail-ldap package...

In other words, better integrate the LDAP stuff into the qmail-src (or
simply - if the new license is ok - the 'qmail' source package).

It will be easier to maintain one source package instead of two...

Preferably, the package should be taken over (if the current maintainer
isn't interessted!!) by someone that understand both qmail and qmail-ldap.
I'll be happy to help, but I don't have time to be the official maintainer -
unless I get help that is.
