Actually, 3.9.0 was released last week ;)

I think we need help, as I feel nearly alone for now.

I do not have the admin rights on the Alioth project, but you can
already have a look on the experimental/development branches in the
project SVN.
I have taken the unstable branch as a basis and have worked on the
package as much as I could.
Binary packages for lenny (both i386 and amd64) are available from my
personal unofficial repository[1].

I plan to keep these packages up-to-date with the now active upstream
development, so that they are ready once the 3.9.1 version is released.

I have been using these packages for some months without problems, and I
think quite a lot of Debian users interested in DSPAM also use them, but
I couldn't test them in various situations, and would like to ensure
everything is ok with the parts I do not use myself.

I am also sure several improvements can be made.

I really wish someone could co-operate on this, as I want DSPAM to be
shipped in Squeeze.
