I have been running VM for a long time on Emacs 26, and now on Emacs 27. It is 
my main email reader/writer. It is just running fine.

I got it from the trunk on launchpad with bzr.
I just put the whole directory in my site-lisp (on my mac that is 
~/Library/Application Support/Emacs/site-lisp/vm-trunk/lisp), but on your Linux 
system it will surely be somewhere else.

I only had to apply a patch to get it working.
