Special call for ISP testers: cyrus-sasl2


As you may have read in [0], a new Cyrus SASL package is very close to
being included in etch. Some of the most important changes are listed in

[0] http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2006/11/msg00011.html
[1] http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2006/11/msg01017.html

I believe that readers of this list are among the ones using Cyrus SASL
for critical systems, and the ones having some of the largest and most
complex setups. Version 2.1.22.dfsg1-6 of cyrus-sasl2 was just uploaded
to unstable, and it should be autobuilt and ready for consumption
through apt-get within a day or two.

Please help us (the Cyrus SASL packaging team) to test the package even
more. We've already got many reports of both successful and unsuccessful
upgrades and installations, and we've squashed a lot of bugs, but we
want to do whatever we can to make sure this package is thoroughly
tested before entering etch.

It's fairly easy to downgrade the package if you encounter problems.
Take backups of /etc/sasldb and /etc/defaults/saslauthd in addition to
backups of whatever user database you're using, and downgrading will be

As always, record your experience by submitting a bug with details. (If
you just want to tell us that everything went fine, you can email us at
pkg-cyrus-sasl2-debian-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org instead.)
