Well, I am packaging cyrus 2.1, and all packages are named cyrus21-*, not
cyrus2-*. You can maintain cyrus2-* (I suggest you rename them to cyrus20-*)
if you want, I do not plan to tack the 2.0 series, they have too many
problems.  I actually started with 2.0.15, but the number of commits to CVS
fixing some troublesome issues got me to package the HEAD 2.1 branch.

But should you want to get your cyrus2 packages officially into Debian, we
need to coordinate this, so as to get the cyrus packages to at least look
sane one next to the other :)

I will upload the current 2.1 packages to people.d.o/~hmh/cyrus21 in a few
hours, when I get home. They will not work because of SASL, but they do
build, and you can play around with the debian/ stuff all you want.

BTW, I renamed them cyrus21 when I noticed that going from cyrus 2.0.x to
2.1.x would require not-so-minor changes such as the entire SASL
database(!), so one had better be prepared to have cyrus 2.1 and 2.2 in the
Debian archive at the same time for a while...
