That would be a great help for us. Nearly everything (including saslauthd) is
supporting mysql lookups, but for postfix it is disabled in the SPEC-File. Hey,
it's an one-liner, everything is prepared.

Comment 2 Thomas Woerner 2005-06-21 10:11:03 UTC
The problem with enabling MySQL in postfix is, that there is no way to make it a
module for postfix - it has to get compiled in.

As long as there is no way to build database support for postfix as modules,
there is no way to enable any database support for postfix, because all enabled
databases have to be installed to install postfix, then.

I am sorry, but this is a no-go, for now.

Comment 3 Markus Wigge 2005-06-21 10:36:50 UTC
That's wrong! The debian-guys do it. Look at their patch and packages, they have
a main package for postfix and additional packages with shared objects for ldap,
mysql, pgsql, pcre ...

I think it should be possible to add this to core.

Comment 4 Thomas Woerner 2005-06-21 11:40:44 UTC
Yes, they have a self-made inofficial patch for this. The patched version is not
able to list all available maps etc. anymore. The core functionality is not the
same. Even it is not clear if there are pitfalls or bugs in it.

Such a big change has to be made upstream.
