sa-exim 4.2.1-14 source package in Ubuntu


sa-exim (4.2.1-14) unstable; urgency=low

  * Updated Danish and Dutch Debconf template translations (Closes:
    #608447, #634314).
  * Drop the defaults for SAspamcHost and SAspamcPort, deferring to spamc
    as to what the defaults will be if those options are not set in
    sa-exim.conf (Closes: #506571).
  * The "nobody" user and "nogroup" group should not own files. Therefore,
    create /var/spool/sa-exim/tuplets with Debian-exim as owner on new
    installations and run greylistclean as Debian-exim by default. Don't
    change ownership of already existing /var/spool/sa-exim or
    /var/spool/sa-exim/tuplets, since the local admin may have different
    preferences, but give the Debian-exim group the write permission it
    needs if /var/spool/sa-exim/tuplets is owned by "nobody" and spamd
    runs as the calling user (Closes: #563492). Add documentation to
    README.Debian and remove recommendation to run spamd as "nobody" from
    README and README.greylisting.
  * Some tidying of debian/rules and the packaging in general:
    * Add build-arch and build-indep targets.
    * Remove configure target; it's not a mandatory target.
    * Remove install target and use dh_install (and dh_lintian) to put the
      files in the staging directory.
    * Replace /var/spool/exim with /var/spool/sa-exim in the Debian patch
      instead of using sed.
    * Pass SUFF='' to the makefile instead of renaming
    * Put our version of the crontab file in debian/greylistclean.cron.d
      and install it using dh_installcron.
    * Upgrade to Debhelper compat level 7. Replace dh_clean -k with
  * Switch to source package format 3.0 (quilt), splitting the Debian
    patch as follows:
    * api-limitations.patch: Changes needed because Exim exports only the 
      symbols that are part of the official API.
    * spamc-args.patch: Changes related to the arguments sent to spamc.
    * grey-clean-sender.patch: Simplify the sender address so that senders
      using VERP, SRS, etc. hopefully won't be greylisted each and every
    * grey-only-ipv4.patch: Bail out if a non-IPv4 address is encountered.
    * improved-default-conf.patch: General improvements (in my opinion) of
      the default sa-exim.conf.
    * spamd-not-nobody.patch: Strike the recommendation that spamd run as
    * save-path.patch: Put saved mail in /var/spool/sa-exim instead of
    * readme.patch: Other additions to the README file(s).
  * Update Standards-Version to 3.9.2.
