I think this point is clear. So there is no restriction to add MailScanner 
to the repository.

I initially always said no to requests like this, as I liked to keep a
close eye on download stats (hence my 1 million downloads figure).
However, MailScanner is getting into more and more distros now, so the
website download stats no longer represent the number of sites using
MailScanner in any meaningful way.

So there's not much point in saying no any more, I've lost control
anyway. So I would be most pleased if Dag would like to add it to his
repository. If there's anything reasonable that he needs me to do in
return, I'll do what I can.
