It's old because there were problems with 3.8.0; people were reverting
to 3.6.8 and the cvs snapshots apparently weren't solving the problems.
Also, there was a question whether the project had died upstream.  All
that is now receding behind us, thankfully.

Yes, things are hopping again upstream  :-)

I'm thinking that we should put 3.9.0 in experimental until it at least
gets out of alpha.  There are a couple of serious bugs in our current
packages that need to be addressed, though.  I haven't had much time in
the last eight months or so but I hope that situation has passed.

Here's Julien's (old) comment on those packages.  I don't know what
progress has been made since then, but I see his repository has been
updated recently.  Maybe he'll give us a progress update.


Julien is also a member of pkg-dspam on Alioth.

I have added you to pkg-dspam.  Welcome!

Currently the pkg-dspam debianization is held in svn:


We should decide if moving our work on Alioth to git would make patch
submission upstream easier, now that dspam has gone to git.  Maybe it's
not worth the effort and continuing with svn-buildpackage is best.  I'm
inclined to leave it alone, but have no strong opinion.  Thoughts?
