We'll be replacing the existing FC boxes with these new CentOS boxes
(to take advantage of the less frenetic release cycle) to act as
central NFS mailstores for Qmail/VPOPMail maildirs. I'll be sure to
give them a week or two's hammering before switching.

Much appreciated it is too. I was trying to avoid veering from base
upstream packages... until I saw those. And Postgres 8 in the dev
repo. And all the useful Dag things. :)

Prompted by Dag's recent robbery, I've actually been trying to hit up
management for a modest OSS development fund, even if it's only a few
hundred quid a year, to donate to the projects we benefit from. We'll
see how that pans out. :)
