# apt-get install fakeroot dpkg-dev
# apt-get source dovecot
# apt-get build-dep dovecot
$ cd dovecot-0.99.10.5
$ chmod +x debian/rules
(add the patch per Timos instructions)
change the 1st line of debian/changelog so the version is 0.99.10.5-1.1
$ fakeroot debian/rules binary
$ cd ..
$ apt-get moo
While I can add the patch to the official package, we really need to get
this version into sarge which will happen after 8 days. If I upload a new
version, the timer gets reset and it will take 10 days from the time of
Debian users: my question is, is adding the patch worth the delay in
getting 0.99.10.5 into sarge?
