Description Luca Lesinigo 2009-09-16 15:31:04 UTC
The ebuilds for 1.1 dovecot series are lagging behind current releases and bug fixes.

Dovecot-1.1.19 has just been released, and will probably be (according to upstream) the last 1.1.xx - please bump the ebuilds in portage and stable them, so we have a stable upgrade path before the switch to 1.2.xx.

FWIW, I'm using net-mail/dovecot-1.1.16 on production amd64 systems since Aug 2009 without problems (a rather simple setup: pop3[s]/imap[s] service with authentication on vpopmail) and I would consider it ready for stabilization, at least with the feature set I'm actually using.

This is security relevant, so please bump, see #286844.
The security team missed original bug, sorry! :/
