FYI Cyrus IMAPd 2.1.3 CVS uploaded and installed into Debian unstable



You are receiving this email because you have contacted me about the Cyrus 2
packages. I apologise if I included any of you in the recipient list by
mistake, I had about 100 mails on Cyrus2 in my inbox...

Due to the unusual high number of people interested in this upload, Debian
Weekly News and Debian User are being bcc'ed as well.

Cyrus 2.1 has been installed in Debian. I will block the packages from
entering Woody because I feel they are not mature enough for Debian stable
yet.  They are working, though (as long as you get SASL2 to do what you want,
that is).


Changes: cyrus21-imapd (2.1.3CVS20020403-1) unstable; urgency=low
  * New CVS source, fixes a few bad bugs in sieve and lmtp
  * Improve ext3 handling in cyrus-makedirs, now request journaled data since
    that improves performance a lot. Your ext3 spool partitions should have a
    large journal, btw.
  * Make sure to tag the vendor string with "Debian (unstable)". It will
    change to something else when I start thinking of this package as a
    more stable 'for production use' (i.e. not tracking CVS blindly)
  * Move imtest and pop3test to a new cyrus21-clients package, as requested
    by GNUS users.  Also move them from /usr/sbin to /usr/bin since they are
    apparently to be regarded as regular user tools...

Changes: cyrus21-imapd (2.1.3CVS20020331-1) unstable; urgency=low
  * Initial Debian Release, codenamed "The Higgs Bogons Are Out There", based
    on the cyrus-imapd packaging by Michael-John Turner <mj@debian.org>, and
    work done by David Parker <david@neongoat.com>. Thanks to David D. Kilzer
    for help with libcom-err, finding missing build dependencies, and lots of
    testing and suggestions, especially the upgrade from old cyrus packages
    guide.
  * THERE IS NO AUTOMATED UPGRADE PATH FROM THE OLD CYRUS 1.5 PACKAGE.
    Read the upstream docs for the manual upgrade procedure, and the
    Debian upgrade docs in /usr/share/doc/cyrus21-common/.
  * Initial set of changes to upstream:
     - Use non-ancient config.sub, config.guess and others
     - Log to MAIL facility, instead of LOCAL6, LOCAL7
     - Rename reconstruct, master, deliver, quota to cyrreconstruct,
       cyrmaster, cyrdeliver, cyrquota (to avoid namespace polution)
     - Fix annoying minor bugs (sent upstream)
     - Move all files that must not be run directly to /usr/lib/cyrus (such
       as imapd, pop3d, lmtpd, timsieved)
     - daemonized cyrmaster, added proper pidfile cron-style locking
  * Removed semi-broken INN support. If someone is willing to install it, test
    and help packaging it properly, it will be readded to the package.
  * Tracking CVS until we reach 2.1.4. Breakage may occur.
