[openFATE 311137] Update of Cyrus imapd to the 2.4.x branch
Feature changed by: Urs Mueller (u136401)
Feature #311137, revision 4
Title: Update of Cyrus imapd to the 2.4.x branch

Package Wishlist: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Urs Mueller (u136401)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
It seems that OpenSUSE 11.4 still ships cyrus imapd 2.3.16. The 2.3.16
is listed as "legacy" at the Cyrus-Homepage
(http://www.cyrusimap.org/mediawiki/index.php/Downloads#IMAP_Server) .
Would it be possible/better to change to 2.4.6 (or whatever version
will be recent then)?

Discussion:
#1: Ralf Haferkamp (rhafer) (2011-01-24 14:03:20)
While 2.3.X is listed as legacy, it still receives bugfixes and
updates. Looking at the rapid rate at which new 2.4.X updates were
released lately we decided against updating. We will wait some more
month for it to stabilize. Additionally our 2.3.x packages are using
the autocreate patch, which (as of last week) wasn't available for 2.4
at all. For 11.5 (or whatever comes after 11.4) we will of course re-
evalutate the situation.

+ Thank you for sharing your information about that decision. I am ok
+ with it. You may close that request.
