Hi Ondřej,

first of all, thanks for all your work on courier, despite not even
using it!

Second, I think I disagree with your conclusion (from December 26th
2016!) that courier should be removed from Debian because it currently
doesnt have a maintainer. courier has a large userbase still, which many
old setups, which are sometimes hard to migrate… thus I think removing
it from stretch now would really be painful for many people (it still
has a high popcon, even though ists declining) and as such I'll
downgrade #848978 accordingly, also because it has no other RC bugs.

cc:ing the release team so they are aware of this.

cheers,
Holger, also a courier user but not captable of taking this
package…
