Severity: normal

Usertags: unblock

Please unblock package exim4, it contains two important fixes from
upstream GIT:
+ 85_server_set_id_SPA.diff: server_set_id was not stored in
   $authenticated_id when using SPA authentication.

This a regression in 4.80 which has the potential to break e-mail
for people using SPA/NTLM to control relaying.

 + 86_Dovecot-robustness.diff: robustness fixes for the Dovecot

Improves robustness of exim4 interacting with a dovecot AUTH server.
As discussed with the security team I intend to prepare a package with
this fix for stable, too. (Later, when 4.80-6 has successfully
propagated to testing after its 10 day waiting period.)

unblock exim4/4.80-6

thanks, cu andreas
