My impression is that pretty much everyone using dovecot runs mail/dovecot2 which is now at 2.2.28, and that this has been true for a very long time. mail/dovecot is at 1.2.17, and was updated to that version on 2011-05-13. About a month later the sieve version was updated. The only real change since then was a CVE remediation patch on 2015-01-23. Plus revbumps, SMF fixes, and other minor maintenance that does indicate that upstream is paying attention or that there are real users. Is anyone using it? Could you explain why? Would anybody object to removing the package? Please feel free to object/explain in private mail if it's too embarassing (but this is a clue) and if any I'll report the count of anonymous objectors and their reasons here. Please note that I am not proposing to rename mail/dovecot2. My view is usually that once a package needs to have two versions, that's likely a condition for life, and renaming PKGNAME hurts more than it helps. I am merely trying to avoid someone doing "cd /usr/pkgsrc/mail/dovecot && make replace" by accident. If there are no objections, I'll remove mail/dovecot, no earlier than a week from now: 2017-04-06 0100Z.
