I see that you are uw-imap's maintainer and you are also a member of
pkg-voip. That is an interesting coincidence :-)
You may not be aware, but latest trunk of Asterisk uses libc-client
2006, as recently uploaded by you, to store Voicemail to an IMAP server.
Note that his has been added recently, since Asterisk's implementation
does not work with versions prior to 2004.
You may be aware that, thanks to Kilian, we are having automated builds
and backports to all Debian and Ubuntu distributions, on
However, this new dependency of Asterisk fails to build on etch and
lenny backports, not to mention the Ubuntu ones. Additionaly, we can't
workaround this the usual way (debian/backports/etch script) because, as
said before, this implementation won't work with the version present in
etch. The same of course applies to all other dists besides sid.
So, I'm asking you to help us, if possible. How?
a) If you are maintaning uw-imap on a (Subversion or git currently, but
this can change with the proper amount of work) repository, could you
give us (well, kilian basically) the URL to it so he can add automatic
snapshots and backports of it as well?
b) Are you willing to add debian/backports/$DIST scripts to your source
trees that change stuff so that backports is possible? I'm not sure that
this is needed yet (i.e. a backport to etch seems to work unmodified)
but it may be needed in the future.
In return, you will get automatic snapshots built for every revision you
commit, automatic backports to all of Debian/Ubuntu's distributions (not
the you care much) and much testing from our beloved Asterisk users :-)
