- Subject: qmail, DJB licensing
What are the isues about qmail license restrictions now?
Most know that it's vastly "superior" over other MTA's.
(i.e. people tend to like it more)
E.g. sourceware uses qmail
I see in the thread around
that qmail has no acceptable license to include it into cygwin,
because it cannot be guaranteed that it will work reliably on that
"crappy platform" (simplified). Maybe just with dropping vpopmail support.
Still the last word?
Maybe provide a source package only? Igor suggested such a trick, but
then the thread drifted into something completely different. (RPM
support, ant, ...)
Sergey's original porting thread
also drifted into something completely different. (mysql server)
Still waiting on DJB's approval?
