Packaging

FreeBSD

Currently, FreeBSD ports/packages provides mail/sympa with Sympa 6.2.44.

RPM: Sympa is available in both Fedora and EPEL

Xavier Bachelot has been working to add Sympa to Fedora and EPEL (Extras packages for Enterprise Linux) for years. From now on, sympa RPMs will be provided through these repositories.

To install Sympa packages on Fedora, use :

dnf install sympa

For RHEL/CentOS with the additional EPEL repository, use :

yum install sympa

RPMs for pre-release (beta) versions of Sympa are provided in a COPR sympa-beta repository (See the documentation for details).

All current Fedora versions and RHEL/CentOS 6 and 7 are supported. However, please note sympa is not yet available for RHEL/CentOS 8, this is still a work in progress.

Planned changes in the future

New Sympa logo

New Sympa logo is proposed. If you have any idea, please comment on the issue #665.
