It has been ages since I looked at this site but I came across Fefe's web page which had a link so I thought it was about time to write an update.

I have not been doing much else but work recently. I did stop the other day so see how the Unix extensions in SAMBA were going. Samba 3.0 seems to work but I still have to submit a patch for the symlink security. I had a play with creating a new config file option but I have not finished.

I also checked out the latest 2.5 kernel. My patches all seem to be present so I assume Urban is looking after them which is good.

I have also started a new project which is to reimplement qmail under an open source license. At the moment I am still planning but I hope to start coding soon. As the word gets out I think support will grow so I don't have to write it all myself. As soon as I pick a name I will create a sourceforge project for it. At the moment I think I will go with "open qmail" which is not very imaginative but seems accurate enough.
