Do you mean packages that 5.5 is dependant on?  I don't think we'll ever
bring vpopmail to a state like that, other than with qmail I mean.

As far as packages that will rely on 5.5, qmailadmin's 1.4 branch relies
on 5.5.  There will also be a vQadmin release that will rely on 5.5.

I hope to have the LDAP change done for the 5.5 stable.  5.5 is a big change
from 5.4, and so I want any other big changes, like a re-working of the LDAP
schema, to go along with the other big changes, rather than a series of big
changes users have to constantly worry about.

It will be at least 2-3 months away, but should be less than 6, hopefully
with the LDAP update (as well as many other changes).

There's plenty of LDAP users, but I doubt they're planning on using 5.5
in it's development form.  :)

Anyone using 5.5 is a major help to me.  I can only put it in production
in so many places.
