Oops, you're right. I am not into the stable distribution (I use
testing instead), so I missed that. However, a new stable
distribution is about to be released soon, which will include
those "future packages".
I don't know exactly what the Exim maintainers are putting into etch.
The note you cited seemed to indicate that they will still rely on
spfquery rather than linking to SPF libraries. IIUC, the negative
comment concerning SPF will be gone, which is good. Unfortunately, it
appears that we will still be forced to use the perl implementation
or rebuild from source, which most people will not do. There was also
a reference that I did not understand to certain features of spfquery
that the maintainer himself used but would not go into the Debian
package. I confess to not understanding this. How up to date is the
perl code compared to the libspf2 implementation that Exim users
outside Debian normally get?
