Some Enterprise Distibutions still use 2.2.x as they maintain the
same version for a very long time. E.g. Suse (SLES 10) uses Cyrus 2.2.12.
These Distrutions patch the software with own patches and backports,
but I don't know if SuSE backported changes from 2.3.x

Is there a way to know if cyrus was updated?
