Binary distribution for Fedora and RHEL (and clones)

People running either Fedora or RHEL (and clones) can find ready to use RPMs for sympa 2.6.37 beta 3 in a COPR repository.

For Fedora, see instruction in the page above. For RHEL and clones, you also need to enable the EPEL repository.

  • Note that unofficial repository on is still available. Administrators who have used it and are not planning to install beta do not need to change their repository settings.

Adding ARC support

This version also aims to be a draft of ARC (Authenticated Received Chain) support with Sympa. Its implementation and documentation were contributed by John Levine.

In a nutshell, ARC is an e-mail authentication scheme that remedies a problem of DMARC especially with mailing list service. Supporting it, we may avoid confusing rewriting on originator addresses. For details about ARC, see a slide by (PDF).

We are looking forward to your feedback on GitHub issue page or mailing lists.
