Consensus in Debian
[ via Planet Debian ] Manoj Srivasta describes the decline of consensus in the Debian project. It's interesting to me that he describes some structural contributions to this problem (the constitution and the general resolution process). The solution he proposes is for people to remember who they are and why they are there, which I think is important. But I'm not sure how effective that can be if there a structural problems. Good structure can't guarantee that good things will happen, but bad structure will definitely prevent good things from happening and often causes bad things to happen. As more and more open source projects get larger and become organizations, the issue of structure is something that we are going to have to face.

Postfix 2.1 and SMTP Access Policy Delgation
[ via BoneHunter [ via Planet Debian ] ] Postfix 2.1 is out and one of the new features is SMTP Access Policy Delegation which allows you to run some code after Postfix sees the RCPT TO command. The README for this feature includes references to a perl server that performs mail greylisting. This looks something that I'd like to put into operation (having to deal with perl code notwithstanding). Ironically, the file greylist.pl doesn't appear in the Debian package for Postfix 2.1, so I'll have to go grab a source distribution. This is probably going to have to wait till after I get back from San Francisco, as the next day or so are going to be quite full.
