I've seen this:


and I'm very surprised that, after such a discussion in last April,
there wasn't any new package for DSPAM in Debian.

Julien, what's the status? After 6 months, you should have been able to
upload a new package, at least in Experimental, no?

As I see that many people seems to be interested in working on a DSPAM
package, I was wondering if the time to do a collab-maint project has
come, so that we aren't fixed to a single maintainer/uploader.

We might use DSPAM in my company (eg: GPLHost), as a replacement for
Spamassassin that takes too much memory and CPU. If it works out well,
then I will for sure give a hand for this package. Can anyone tells me
why DSPAM is better than spamassassin? Would I still need clamav if I
run DSPAM (our understanding is that we would)? How much memory DSPAM
uses in a normal production server?

Your thoughts?
