To clarify, I am not anyhow 'hostile' to Debian provided packages, 
however, there were some serious issues with them in the past.

Initially, Rspamd was packaged by Mikhail Gusarov and we had a 
productive collaboration, as we worked **together** to make Rspamd 
packages to satisfy both user experience and Debian packages standards. 
However, when he was unable to continue maintainership, the packages 
were not updated or fixed in the official Debian repos. I made my own 
packages and recommended users to use them instead. Later, others 
attempted to support Rspamd in Debian without consulting me, resulting 
in missing functionality and incorrect dependencies. While the current 
situation has improved, I still recommend using the packages provided by 
Rspamd as they are kept up-to-date and include important patches that 
may be missing from other packages.
