New cyrus-sasl2 for etch?

[ Fabian sent this message to vorlon and to pkg-cyrus-sasl2-debian-devel
early yesterday.  I've not seen a response, so I am resending and adding
debian-release. ]

The cyrus-sasl2 team has now reached a point where we would like to
consider inclusion in etch. We've ironed out a lot of bugs, and the
package has been tested in unstable for a while.

We believe that the package is at least as good as the one currently in
etch -- probably better, because of the long-standing bugs we've been
able to close. Also, we've introduced a debug package that could be a
great help in debugging some of the harder issues that have plagued this
library in the past. (See the bug reports against this package about
memory leaks and segfaults.) So there are many points that support
inclusion in etch.

We ask you to take a look at the cyrus-sasl2 package in unstable and
decide if it's fit for etch. If not, we'd appreciate a list of the
blocking issues. If it is fit for inclusion, please advise on what we
need to do, if anything.

Please be aware that Postfix has bug #398245, which must be fixed for
Postfix to work with this new cyrus-sasl2 version. It is possible that
other software linking against cyrus-sasl2 will require similar
adjustments. We've provided a patch for that bug and will continue to
help our reverse dependencies to upgrade.
