Sendmail in DragonFly is now at version 8.14.15, thanks to Jan Lentfer. (Have you seen this new MeTA1 thing?) See the changelog changes for the nitty-gritty.
MeTA1 is not exactly new. At one point in time it was named sendmailX. It is worth looking into it, especially its documentation and design document.
Typo in my commit message, latest sendmail is 8.14.5, not 8.14.15 :(
adamo – MeTA1 was started more recently than the 8x sendmail series, though – wasn’t it? It’s certainly possible I missed it.
MeTA1’s predecessor was sendmail X http://www.sendmail.org/sm-X/ So yes, it is newer, but with MeTA1 being around since ~2007 I would not call it a new thing :)
Hm I thought sendmail would be dropped from base once dma is in… Seems like it’s not
I think there’s some features still missing from DMA that would be good to have before dropping sendmail… what they are, I don’t remember. It would be a question for whomever worked on DMA last; which I also don’t remember. That may be more descriptive of the problem.
