Submission + - DJB releases qmail to the public domain (

fade writes: "In a post on the qmail website, Daniel J. Bernstein released the second most popular mail transport agent on the internet to the public domain... a complete 180 from the license he has used for qmail since it's inception. This means that 'free as in speech' distros can pull qmail out of the doghouse of restricted repositories and bizarre binary source-only metabuilders. Good news for admins that braved licensing insanity because qmail is possibly the single most finished (feature complete, bug free) and performant mailer available."
