This message is to announce availabliltiy of the latest experimental or
snapshot version of Postfix in RPM package format.

NOTE: This is close to being Wietse's next official version of Postfix.
      Treat these RPMs with a little more care than normal.

      I've had to make several changes to this package in line with the
      changes he has included with this version so please let me know of
      any problems you experience.  I hope not to have done anything
      really silly.

      Should it be necessary to downgrade back to a Version pre-20020106
      you will need to modify permissions and ownerships in
      /var/spool/postfix and settings in /etc/postfix/master.cf.

Changes since previous versions:

- more install changes as Wietse has made more modifications to his
  install scripts
- /etc/postfix/html points to /usr/share/doc/postfix-<version>/html
- /etc/postfix/README_FILES points to README_FILES/ in the same
- sample-xxx.cf files are currently stored in /etc/postfix
  - I don't like this much and think that Wietse will put these in
    a new /etc/postfix/samples/ directory [pending]
- add /etc/postfix/main.cf.default

The installation currently gives a small error about not finding man
pages.  This is because standard RH practice is to gzip man pages and
I haven't yet modified the /etc/postfix/postfix-files to reflect the
compressed files.  I will do this when the installation procedure
stabalises.  All the man pages _are_ installed and man xxxx works fine.
