Hello Eadthem, Davide and List,
I agree that a "thumbs up" from Davide Libenzi would be a very good starting
point... so: Davide, what do you think?
Undefined behaviour testing is a good idea and fuzzing would be made easier if
we had a suite for another mailserver to base it on, do you have experience in
As for bugs:
* There may be some here http://xmailforum.marketmix.com/ it is rather quiet
now but was an active forum at one time.
* If we were to place this code in github we could track issues.
There is a wish list, a TODO file in the distribution IIRC. I am aware of a
minor issue regarding line endings when writing mail to file, I have looked at
this locally but since development has stalled and it is not a big concern I
did nothing more.

At the moment ive started toying with the source some.
I am still torn between working on xmail vs switching to a different mail
My thoughts so far.
* My first concern with no active development is, Are there any security issues
* I haven't found any in the wild exploits against the current release of
** Doesn't mean it Doesn't exist.
* I have no experience with any other mail server.
* I don't have time to do a ton of matinance support on my own for a mail server
* I have no windows machines to test with (YAY !?)
Things i would want to do if taking this on would be..
* Get some sort of thumbs up or feedback from Davide Libenzi.
* Recompile for testing with asan + ubsan + tsan. As they can spot a lot of
potential security issues. (Not aware of any myself)
* Conduct fuzzing testing.
* Change the server setup to run as an unprivileged user by default / with ease.
* Look for current bug reports, as at the moment, I know of none.
So my first question is, is there even a wish list? or any known security or
bug issues to be dealt with?
I am interested in feedback on this stuff.
I would keep any security issues confidential until a patching method was
available and merely state if i knew of one.
I do not at this time know of any.
