dbmail git patch
In dbmail 3.0.2 there's a relatively severe memory leak that's caused by the ssl structure never being released after a connection is finished. This has been fixed upstream with this commit: http://git.dbmail.eu/paul/dbmail/commit/?id=7dcf55a92098ed8a12bbc210889948d0195bdee4
Since the fix was already incorporated upstream, it would be nice if the patch could be applied to this package version until a release happens upstream.
I've attached the updated spec and patch.
