HEADS UP: Postfix 2.8.8 imported


I've imported Postfix 2.8.8 into NetBSD-current today. It builds and works
fine under NetBSD/i386. Please submit a bug report if you find any problems.

Here is a list of the changes since version 2.8.7:

- The Postfix sqlite client, introduced with Postfix 2.8, had an
  embarassing bug in its quoting routine. As the result of a
  last-minute code cleanup before release, this routine returned the
  unquoted text instead of the quoted text. The opportunities for
  mis-use are limited: Postfix sqlite database files are usually owned
  by root, and Postfix daemons usually run with non-root privileges so
  they can't corrupt the database. This problem was reported by Rob
  McGee (rob0).
- The Postfix 2.8.4 fix for local delivery agent database lookup
  errors was incomplete. The fix correctly added new code to detect
  database lookup errors with mailbox_transport_maps,
  mailbox_command_maps or fallback_transport_maps, but it failed to
  log the problem, and to produce a defer logfile record which is
  needed for "delayed mail" and "mail too old" delivery status
- The trace(8) service, used for DSN SUCCESS notifications, did not
  distinguish between notifications for a non-bounce or a bounce
  message, causing it to "reply" to mail with the null sender
  address. Problem reported by Sabahattin Gucukoglu.
- Support for Dovecot auth over TCP sockets, using code that already
  existed for testing purposes. Patrick Koetter kindly provided an
  update for the SASL_README file.
- Workaround in the LDAP client for changes in the under-documented
  OpenLDAP API, by Victor Duchovni.

        Kind regards
