Pretty much, Cyrus IMAP is the headline part, and the bit I care about.
If there's a SASL champion who would like to take the lead on that
project, it would be fantastic.

In theory, bugzilla is the place.  The issue, of course, is confidentiality.
Right now the answer is probably myself or Ken Murchison at CMU.

Pull the entire git repository is best.  Those buttons are both just tag
markers which point to the same commit.  Patches should always be
against either master, or if they are only appropriate to previous revisions,
against the mainline branch for that release (i.e. cyrus-imapd-2.4)
