Heads Up: Sendmail Removed from Base
Contributed by tbert on Tue Sep 16 08:56:55 2014 (GMT)
from the day of the living tedu dept.

In the first of several commits, Matthieu Herrb (matthieu@) has removed sendmail from the release:

CVSROOT:	/cvs
Module name:	src
Changes by:	matthieu@cvs.openbsd.org	2014/09/15 16:25:57

Modified files:
	gnu/usr.sbin   : Makefile 

Log message:
Unlink sendmail from the build. ok krw@ ajacoutot@

Users of OpenSMTPd can rejoice in having no work to do; others will have to install sendmail from packages.

  Hip Hip Hurray! :-)

I also do hope that a new release might come out soon now. It has been a while since a "stable Version" was released. :-]

s/OpenSMTPd/any MTA other than sendmail/ ;-)

More importantly, sendmail isn't actually in packages yet. There's a WIP port, but it hasn't yet been committed. When it's there, it will actually be easier for sendmail users wanting any compiled-in features (LDAP, SASL etc) as there won't be a "base OS" version to have to deal with.

  Sounds good but is there also some support for clamd and spamassassin ?

  Yes, I see this as a good step. I was wondering for a long time, why OpenBSD kept Sendmail in for so long. If I were them, I had it removed long before Apache and Bind. The more lightweight it is, the better.
