all realize that you are generating more noise than the noise
that is the root of the discussion.  The installation script release
updates on a vpopmail list are debateable if you really like being AAAP
(As Anal As Possible).  But the fact that it is a simple post about a
qmail project someone is working on, which (arguably) does very much
relate to vpopmail makes me believe it shouldn't be ridiculed.  If you
really feel the need to tell someone to post to another list, you don't
have to be a terrible asshole about it right from the get-go.  I think a
few people on this list need to get a punching bag and/or a girl friend.

PS.  Franck, I say post on man.  I'm gonna be setting up another MX for
my company, and I'm gonna give your script a try.  Peaz.
