@debian.org mail delivery problems for IPv6 MXs resolved

Hi all,

Since Sarge 3.1r2, exim4 in stable has a fix for a routing logic error
that caused mail, particularly but not necessarily exclusively for IPv6
MXs, to be wrongfully bounced and not delivered. This was most noticable
for developers having their @debian.org email forwarded to a domain that
has some IPv6 MXs.

The problem was discussed on -devel in november/december last year, see
for example http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2005/12/msg00308.html
and #342619.  Thanks go to in particular Florian Weimer and Marc Haber
for nailing down the issue and to propose a fix.

Since exim on master.debian.org, the MX for @debian.org, was recently
upgraded, this problem should now no longer occur.
