policyd-rate-limit is a simple postfix policy daemon written in python3
allowing to limit the number of mails a user can send over time.
Users are identified either via their sasl usernames or their ip addresses.
Limitation rules are a list of couples (number of mails, number of seconds).
If a user has sent more than number of mails in number of seconds,
a configurable error is returned to the user.

policyd-rate-limit (1.0.0-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Team upload
* Release to unstable

policyd-rate-limit (1.0.0-1~exp+1) experimental; urgency=medium
* Team upload
[ Ondřej Nový ]
* d/copyright: Use https protocol in Format field
* d/control: Remove ancient X-Python3-Version field
[ Pierre-Elliott Bécue ]
* New upstream 1.0.0
+ Fixed:
- typos
- Add 1 missing char to the rapport table width
- Disable pip cache then installing with make install
- Fix a db deadlock when running the script with --cleanup
- In case of error during a read from postfix, display the whole traceback
- Handles socket reuse by postfix
This was causing delay in mail delivery as postfix had to detect the
connection was closed. This was taking about 1s by recipient in a mail
and could dramatically slow mail delivery.
+ Added
- Add possibility to limit by sender e-mail address as requested in
- Allow one to send reports to multiple email addresses.
* d/control:
- Raise dependency level on debhelper from 9 to 11
- Bump Standards-Version to 4.2.1
* d/compat: bump to 11
* d/watch: bump version to 4

policyd-rate-limit (0.6.2-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release

[ Scott Kitterman ]
* Use python3-docutils vice python-docutils for build-depends since
everything else is python3
[ Valentin Samir ]
* New upstream release
- Migrate configuration to a yaml file.
- Continue running if asking for the value of a config param and we fail to
drop privileges. This fix postinst failing to create the system user.
- If not config file found fallback to default config

policyd-rate-limit (0.5.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Initial release. (Closes: #831456)
* Disable the usage of upstream init scripts (patch ignore-init-service.patch)
and use policyd-rate-limit.service and policyd-rate-limit.init instead.
They are identical to the upstream ones except for /usr/local/bin/ replaced
by /usr/bin/. It also let dh_installdeb automatically setup symbolic links
in rc* in postinst and postrm.
