Apologies to any Debian maintainers out there...  Don't bother using the 
extremely out-of-date Debian packages.  The next release of Debian will 
still only have Cyrus v2.2.

If you want to run Cyrus on Debian or its derivatives like Ubuntu, just 
download the latest Cyrus source code and build it yourself.  The build 
process is very simple and you get the benefits of the major improvements 
that have gone into the latest 2.3.16 release or even better, 2.4.6.

If you want to stick with a packaged version of Cyrus, go to an RPM-based 
distribution and use Simon Matter's Cyrus RPMs.
