Could you please help us out with some info on your hypermail installation ? Please fill in a yes or no answer and reply to this message. I have set the reply-to to go me instead of the bothering the list. I will tally the results and post a message to the list in a few days.

  1. Are you using the FNV library functions ? __________

   We are considering removing the fnv code from the baseline. We are trying    to find out if anyone is using the message-id message numbering scheme in    their hypermail archives.

2. Are you using the cgi/mail program ? __________  

   Today and for the last few years we have not compiled or installed the    cgi-bin/mail utility. Yet we have kept it in our baseline. What for ?    The mail utility is a security error that needs to be removed from the    baseline completely.

3. Are you using the libcgi library in some other application ? __________  

   The library libcgi was originally made a part of hypermail to support    the cgi-bin/mail utility. With mail not being used, there is no need    to keep it in the hypermail baseline as it is simple dead weight.

   We are trying to decide what to do with it. Is libcgi worth carrying    around as a disjoint part of hypermail or should it too be removed from    the baseline, and become it's own distribution ?

Thanks for helping!
