maildrop should have courier-authlib support
Last modified: 2008-07-26 21:15:14 EDT
Current release of maildrop does not have courier-authlib built in, this makes
impossible to run the the maildrop with LDAP lookup.
If courier-authlib support is to hard to achieve (I read it from some other
bugs), better remove maildrop from repository - maildrop from fedora is not
using the version recommended by courier, which means every time I run yum
update it will overwrite my own installation until I manually bump up the
version (which makes my installation non-standard).

courier-authlib is currently not packaged in fedora and can therefore not be used a dependency for
maildrop. Compiling maildrop with courier-authlib is a 'nice to have' feature. Maildrop can use courier-
authlib to lookup some user data (for example, quota) but is quite usable without courier-authlib. The
complete filtering and mail delivery engine can be used. Therefore, I can't see a reason for removal of the
I agree with Johan, just because we are not yet capable to enable all features
doesn't mean that we should remove the rest.
MePal, if you have it working, why not submit your courier-authlib package to
Fedora? Once this is in we can rebuild maildrop against it. There was already a
review that almost got passed (IIRC the submitter disappeared at some time),
e.g. there is no strong issue lice patents/licensing etc. preventing
courier-authlib to enter Fedora. Maybe the old submitted specifle still exists
to use it as a start.
Once courier-authlib is in Fedora, please reopen this bug, so I can rebuild
maildrop against it. Thanks!
