Zarafa 6.40.0 has been submitted for updates-testing (EPEL 5 and 6, Fedora
12, 13 and Rawhide). Please note, that the zarafa-indexer package can't be
built for EPEL 6 right now due to a crash bug in CLucene 0.9.21. I already
requested with https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=600925 an update
to CLucene 0.9.21b for RHEL 6 (beta) which fixes the multithreading issue.
