Re: Many outstanding RC bugs for cyrus and seemingly no maintainer action?

As far as 2.3 is concerned, I think the 2.3.8 packages in experimental
should be ignored in favour of the current 2.3-development SVN branch
(which is 2.3.14 plus security fixes and will be 2.3.16 as soon as I
have time).

There is activity, but I think all the current team suffer from lack of
time.  I have 2.3.16 for Debian on my official To Do list ;-)  I'll also
take a look at the bugs filed against 2.3.

I'm sure more help would be appreciated.

I certainly hope a suitable 2.3 package will be ready.  I believe other
members of the team intend to continue to maintain 2.2 for some time
yet.  One of the bits of work which most needs doing is ensuring the
upgrade path is smooth for typical small single-server installations as
seen at site who may not have an expert available.

It would make sense to move to 2.3 in Squeeze as upstream are making
noises about focussing on 2.4 RSN.
