Peter Pentchev, the Debian package maintainer for the "stunnel4"
package, does not reply to my emails. I hope he is still alive and
well, just too busy to maintain the package.
I decided to share with you my comments to the patches that are
applied to the Debian package. Hopefully, someone will find them useful.

Just a few comments/questions to improve the quality of Debian package.
I'll be glad to discuss if you disagree with my opinions.
The patch description is quite outdated. Translation from sbin to bin
was performed upstream in stunnel 4.21 released 27 Oct 2007. 8-)
/usr/bin/stunnel -fd 10 \
/usr/bin/stunnel4 -fd 10 \
Probably this should be added to the next patch:
Good idea. I'll add it to stunnel 5.07.
I've already added this example in stunnel 5.02.
Your patch adds it once again. Just remove it.
I'm completely confused by this patch. According to my tests it only
makes stunnel reporting different errors when a user tries to enable
compression on Debian. Why would anyone need this patch?
IMHO OpenSSL bugs should be fixed in OpenSSL, and not in stunnel.
I strongly disagree with this approach, as it breaks configuration
file compatibility with the upstream. Debian should instead rewrite
stunnel.conf when upgrading from stunnel 4.xx.
This (and more) will be included in stunnel 5.07.
This will be included in stunnel 5.07.
