./security/cyrus-sasl, Simple Authentication and Security Layer

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.1.28nb1, Package name: cyrus-sasl-2.1.28nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

SASL is a method for adding authentication support to connection-based
protocols. To use SASL, a protocol includes a command for identifying and
authenticating a user to a server and for optionally negotiating protection
of subsequent protocol interactions. If its use is negotiated, a security
layer is inserted between the protocol and the connection.

This is the Cyrus SASL API implentation. It can be used on the client or
server side to provide authentication. See RFC 2222 for more information.

Log message:
cyrus-sasl: Remove some outdated text from MESSAGE.

Some users found this text confusing and ended up trying to put config
files in the very directory we were telling them not to, e.g.

This text was added almost 7 years ago, so we can be pretty confident that
users have migrated past this change by now.
