Yeah. Tell me about it. I couldn't even get someone to answer a simple question
about the vpopmail development cycle.

I think inter7 would benefit from two things:

1.) CVS
2.) Actually reading their own mailing lists.

These two things combined would make vpopmail a really excellent top notch
product, rather than the extremely useful, but kinda hard to work with product
it is currently.
