Re: Needs packaging, and maintainer urgently needed: FossaMail

They were looking for someone to actually maintain the code, which is far beyond me. I don't think you need to close the thread, but you could mark it with "RESOLVED", I guess. Just not resolved in the manner we would prefer.

Re: System won't shutdown after couple of suspend/resume

The random freezes that were happening before are also worrying...maybe testing the RAM and checking out the drive with gsmartctl would reveal something. If everything works OK from in a Live session, I'd start worrying about files on the HD install being corrupted.
