Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 145371
optional auth should be loadable module in sub-package
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:51:14 EST
This is bug to make sure the issue in bug #145241 gets resolved.
The postgres and mysql support (plus any other optional auth) should
be built as loadable modules as described in the dovecot INSTALL doc
file. Then these modules should be provided as sub-packages.
The rational is dovecot should be lightweight and not have heavy
external dependencies. If a site wants the optional mechanisms then
they can install an appropriate sub-package that provides a loadable
module with the support and only then will there be a dependency on
Since all the discussion happened in bug #145241, i am closing this one as a
dupe and retitling the former to better describe the problem at hand.
