The Vacation Mail Responder has been abandoned for over 5 years now, so I contacted the former maintainers and asked them about taking on the project. They were happy about that and so now I find myself looking after it, along with Brian May.
I’ve made a minor bug fix (to add the
Precedence: bulk header to all responses it generates) and updated the maintainer information and just released 126.96.36.199, over 5 years from the 188.8.131.52 release.
The main question is now, of course, where do we go from here ? One of the options we’re seriously considering is whether we should rebase from the native packages in Debian & Ubuntu as their version has been independently developed and gone much further than this one.
But for now I can go to sleep tonight feeling happy that I’ve taken on my first open source project and started to breath some life into it once more..
