    2014-11-15 - Scott Kitterman <> mailsync (5.2.2-3.1) unstable; urgency=medium * Non-maintainer upload. * Add libkrb5-dev as an explicit build-depend to fix FTBFS (Closes: #768736) - Thanks to Simon Elsbrock for the patch

    2012-09-04 - Tomas Pospisek <> mailsync (5.2.2-3) unstable; urgency=high * set urgency=high because libc-client broke mailsync and the mailsync currently in wheezy and to be released will not even start. See next changelog entry and also #682256 and #686393 * debian/control: rebuild against and depend on libc-client2007e (>= 8:2007f~dfsg-1) since c-client broke its own library version checks. Thanks Fredrik Jonson (Closes: #685897) * debian/copyright: made machine readable * debian/compat: added * debian/control: added * a question to my 23 users (according to popcon): is it worth to maintain this package? Wouldn't it maybe be wiser to migrate to open. If you care about this package then please let me know.

    2012-01-15 - Tomas Pospisek <> mailsync (5.2.2-2) unstable; urgency=low * thanks a lot to Gregor Herrmann and Ilya Barygin for the previous NMU * debian/control: migrate from automake1.7 to automake1.11 (Closes: #648586) * thanks to Eric Dorland for pointing out the way forward * debian/control: bump Standards-Version to * doc/examples/mailsync: s#/var/spool/mail#/var/mail# * debian/rules: bump DH_COMPAT to 7 * debian/control: add ${misc:Depends} to "Depends:" field * debian/control: add "Homepage:" field

    2011-11-12 - gregor herrmann <> mailsync (5.2.2-1.1) unstable; urgency=low * Non-maintainer upload. * Fix "FTBFS: configure: error: a working c-client installation is required for building mailsync": apply patch from Ubuntu / Ilya Barygin: * Fix FTBFS: - debian/rules, acinclude/ac_with_openssl.m4, configure: provide an additional directory to search for libssl. - add missing build dependencies: libssl-dev, libpam0g-dev, libkrb5-dev. (Closes: #642689) * Additionally build depend on dpkg-dev >= 1.16.0.

    2006-03-05 - Tomas Pospisek <> mailsync (5.2.2-1) unstable; urgency=low * remove build-dependency on automake1.6, since it's been removed from the archive (thanks Martin Michlmayr) closes: 355317

    2004-07-03 - Tomas Pospisek <> mailsync (5.2.1-2) unstable; urgency=low * debian: * remove build-dependency on the automake1.5 package, which is no more existant. (Thanks Lamont!) closes: #257379

    2004-06-30 - Tomas Pospisek <> mailsync (5.2.1-1) unstable; urgency=low * new in upstream: closes: #256832 * #mh folders should work better * mailsync shouldn't possibly be messing with flags at all if the mailbox (IMAP f.ex) allows it. Check the "-n" option for most restricted flag handling. * don't delete duplicate messages with empty Message-IDs * not exiting any more on stores without subdirs * don't show message IDs by default * "-n" has a new meaning: do not delete messages * debian: * depend on automake1.5|1.6|1.7 since 1.4 doesn't provide depcomp closes: #191221 * the package should be buildable on woody out of the box. Further docu for compiling under woody is in README.Debian (thanks Mike Crowe).

    2003-04-15 - Tomas Pospisek <> mailsync (5.1.1-1) unstable; urgency=high * new in upstream: * not properly expunging emails fixed - visible with #mh folders
