First the bad news:
Developing on E.F.A. 2.x has halted for now or maybe even forever.
The concept of an spamfilter based on baruwa, exim, ubuntu etc has not been received that well.
The main reasons that are brought to my attention are:
- Complicated setup
- Baruwa is not user friendly (although it looks good..)
- CentOS/RHEL based system is preferred instead of debian/ubuntu.
- Postfix is preferred over exim
If there is someone out there that wants to take over this project then you are free to go, contact me about your wishes and all will be granted
The good news:
Now for the good news.
Because lots of people have asked me I have started an clone of the previous ESVA project and called it E.F.A. v3 for now that will be my main project.
See this topic for more information: http://forum.efa-project.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=426
Previous E.F.A 2.x info:
Currently I am working on E.F.A. 2.x.x.x, this is a completely NEW setup based on Baruwa 2.x, with this post I will try to send out some updates about the status of the project.
Because E.F.A. uses Baruwa as the core interface and development of Baruwa 1.x has halted we started a new 'numbering scheme' at version 2.x.x.x.
This might be a bit confusing but it is done to keep in sync with Baruwa.
This means that E.F.A. 2.x is NOT an upgrade for the previous 0.3 E.F.A. version.
So what does E.F.A. 2.x contain:
- Ubuntu 12.04
- Baruwa 2.x Community Edition For features see: baruwa.org
All development will be stored on github available here:
Short: Not working.
Long: I started working on the Initial build script for E.F.A. 22.214.171.124 (see github), currently the script installs about all necessary software and tries to configure most of the software but the script is far from complete.
