I have been practicing Debian packaging for some time now but haven't
yet tried get a sponsor for one, up until now. :)
I have been involved with the hastymail project for a while and
thought it would be great if the application made it into the official
So to comply with the debian-mentors FAQ, here is some more information
on the package:
1. package: hastymail <URL:http://hastymail.sourceforge.net/>
2. license: GPL
Short description: fast, RFC compliant, secure webmail application
Hastymail is yet another webmail IMAP client written in PHP.
Hastymail is designed for speed, RFC compatibility, simplicity,
and security. The goal of Hastymail development is to create
a simple interface with powerful but easy to use options that
make managing your IMAP account effective and fast.
4. the latest stable package can be downloaded at:
and the packaging files are in the hastymail anonymous CVS.
cvs -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/hastymail login
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/hastymail \
co -P hm_deb_files
Would anyone of you be kind enough as to review the package and see
whether it might be fit for sponsoring and/or for non-maintainer
Any comments and/or constructive criticism will be greatly appreciated.
The project is rather active and will be releasing Hastymail 1.4 soon
as well. :)
