Good to know!

I figure it's hard, at this point, to track down the commit in an attempt
at a 2.2-branch backport?

The alternative is to bite the bullet and start working on my promised
experimental 3.0 packages. However, since the last 3.0pre release, I've
seen a number of big changes, some of which appeared to be interface

If I upload a libmailutils3 package to experimental, the API needs to be
stable, or I'll have to bump the soname to something ugly like
libmailutils3debian$num myself, and I'd really want to avoid that.

My plan is to start using a symbols list to track API additions to the
libs, and if symbols disappear (or the interface changes) between releases
with no soname bump, I'll have a problem.

How far are we from an API/ABI freeze?


PS: off-topic, but with last night's upload, mailutils is finally
available for the hurd-i386 architecture on the unstable suite, after a
way too long series of build failures, all unrelated to mailutils' code.
OTOH, a new Debian architecture (s390x) has testsuite failures, but I
still don't have an idea if this same error is still present in the
current git master code:
S390X is our only big-endian, native 64 bit architecture, so that's
probably the main difference between the rest.
