HAH! Is this confirmed in some way?
What more confirmation do you need than the second paragraph from the
URL you listed above:
D. J. Bernstein
Information for distributors
If you're a distributor, you should join the
0 mailing list.
I hereby place the qmail package (in particular, qmail-1.03.tar.gz, with
MD5 checksum 622f65f982e380dbe86e6574f3abcb7c) into the public domain.
You are free to modify the package, distribute modified versions, etc.
This does not mean that modifications are encouraged! Please take time
to ensure that your distribution of qmail supports exactly the same
interface as everyone else's. In particular, if you move files, please
set up symbolic links from the original locations, so that you don't
frivolously break scripts that work everywhere else.
On the other hand, what do you want to do with it now that it is public
domain? 100 forks -- all different -- will not help the qmail world.
