The previous discussions has lead nowhere. No use in discussing it yet
again, instead it's time to act!

There where no consensus, since you where all just discussing overengineered
solutions for solving the problem and all pointing out bugs in eachothers
suggestions. Using exim4 | mail-transport-agent is the most
straight-forward solution and will require minimal changes.
When (or even if) the default mta changes, we can easily introduce the
default-mta then (and maybe people would even have come up with a bug-free
overengineered solution by then).

I offer to fix up all packages to exim4 | mail-transport-agent *and*
when there is a working default-mta proposal and a need for changing the
actual default mta fix it up in every package.

If people put as much effort into actually working on packages
as they did on debating in useless threads that leads nowhere the
distribution would be in a hell of alot better shape.

Over and out.
