+* scheme implementation of the Sieve language discontinued
+There's no reason to keep two different implementations of the Sieve
+language within the same package. The principal implementation
+(libmu_sieve) is faster, much more advanced and rich in features than
+the implementation in Scheme. The decision has therefore been taken to
+discontinue the latter and to concentrate all efforts on the further
