Hey folks,

I do know more; I run both the OBS, do the packaging and such and so 
forth. It's therefore also my fault that I'm not paying as much to these 

I wasn't under the impression anyone was actually interested in using 
these packages, and it was originally created as a verification step in 
development, more than the intended distribution channel for Cyrus IMAP.

That is to say, we ship some of the latest and greatest with our own 
product, which is also where I spend most of my time.

2.4-next, 2.5-next and master project builds are supposed to be 
triggered as part of Continuous Integration -> Continuous Delivery. I 
have, since I've started with all of this, written a variety of scripts 
necessary to check stuff back in to the build system -- but I have not 
applied that to the cyrus-imapd build projects.

Leaves me to wonder whether these packages are actually used by some or 
the other significant number of deployments?

Kind regards,
