[Pkg-roundcube-maintainers] Bug#505267: roundcube: some form of log output on failed logins

Package: roundcube
Version: 0.1.1-8
Severity: wishlist

Roundcube is awesome and I like it lots, but the lack of any log output 
or hooks of any kind makes it annoyingly vulnerable to brute force 
attacks. I added a little error output into the login page to dump an 
apache-style line to stderr so it can be easily picked up by firewalling 
programs like fail2ban (see included patch).
