It appears that once again development on cyrus-sasl has come to a 
standstill.  I understand that Fastmail's priority is cyrus-imapd, but 
there are many software projects that use and depend on cyrus-sasl.  At 
this point, can it be clarified if:

a) People should just assume that cyrus-sasl is dead and look at 
transitioning to other libraries (such as libgsasl)


b) Fastmail would be willing to hand over control of cyrus-sasl to those 
parties interested in actually maintaining cyrus-sasl


c) Fastmail is actually going to start actively responding to and dealing 
with the growing number of open issues (many with provided patch fixes) in 
a timely fashion
