Description Steve Jenkins 2011-09-23 23:33:52 UTC
Since dkim-milter's upstream has been abandoned and unmaintained for years, and opendkim (http://opendkim.org) was forked from the final version (2.8.3) of dkim-milter in 2009 and is still actively maintained, this is a request that dkim-milter be deprecated in the Fedora and EPEL repos. Thanks!

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)

More information and reason for this action is here:

I just came across this bug while trying to work on sysv-to-systemd conversion: this is one of the packages listed to be converted. I happen to have an interest in the area and I agree with Steve that this package should be obsoleted by opendkim and retired.

Jim, you haven't updated any of your packages or responded to any bugs since 2011, so I'm kicking off the non-responsive maintainer process. If you're still around, can you please reply to this bug and work with Steve to retire this package? If not, I'll follow through the process so I can take it over and retire it.

Comment 3 Jim Radford 2013-10-01 18:26:02 UTC
I have retired dkim-milter.  It has security problems and it obsoleted by opendkim.
