I think that is time to create a "qmail GPL project" , "qmail megapatch project" or something similiar.... a big patch developed in gpl'd like project. The problem is that patching a qmail mail server is very common, and when you have to apply a lot of patch to the same source you can't do it automatically and you must adjust it by hand.... an headache.... So a project that will put all this useful patches in a big patch will be very very useful, i think that the patch allowed must be very selected to maintain the qmail code clean as from djb, and the best would be that the feature will be enabled or disabled via one control file. I'm not a C programmer but i will learn it expecially to modify qmail/inter7 tools to suite my needs (i work a lot with this programs) so i cannot mantain the project, but help with it.
What do you think about it? I'd appreciate any suggestion.
