[Rspamd-Users] update issue on Debian 10

I understand the thing about EOL but on the other hand there is standard 
Debian LTS support which is the reason some of us use debian for 
servers. And most of us update Debian servers 1+ years after new stable 
is released.

I dont want to be rude or anything but the thing which confuses me the 
most in this case is that package requirements for rspamd on Debian 11 
are different from those for Debian 10.

Deb10 needs: libunwind-16

Deb11 needs: libunwind8 /completely fine in debian repos even on Deb10/

Anyway, there is always a way to compile it yourself it is just
