Nope, all severs are slackware (and I dont have any problem which was my
point in earlier thread, no reason why 1.2.17 can't still be suitable
for years to come) used to have some gentoo as well, but phased them out
to keep everything uniform, and desktops are almost now all opensuse,
and once ubuntu stop supporting 10.04 those couple will be converted to
opensuse as well (and thats only "then" because I'm too lazy to do it
"now" LOL)

I build from sources all key daemon software anyway, package maintainers
can only account for so many configurations. Its not so critical with
dovecot now since v2, because, regrettably, Timo removed a lot of fine
tune config options that allowed us to only build in what we wanted,
now, tuff, most the auth methods and stuff must be built even if we dont
want them.

But if we absolutely must need a new feature that is in 2.1.x and we can
no longer live without it, then and only then will I consider moving to
it, otherwise, I'm happy to sit on 1.2 until I consider 2.1 mature and
stable enough.
