Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 139954
Add UW-IMAP to Dovecot migration documentation & scripts

I gather that you're the package maintainer for Dovecot.
I have used your dovecot package (re-built by me for RHEL3)
in a recent production mail server upgrade. I used maildir,
and the performance improvement over uw-imap was amazing.
However, the hard part was transitioning the existing
mailboxes to maildir format.
So, it seems that RHEL4 as it stands now will ship
without providing a ready means for users to migrate
My reason for writing is to suggest that we provide
access to my mailbox migration tools in the
Dovecot package for RHEL4. Even though it's
late in the release cycle, could this material
be included in the package's documentation area
as a contributed and unsupported resource?
I propose that the files in:
as well as
be included in /usr/share/doc/dovecot-<vers>/mailbox-migration/
Note that migrate.tar includes perfect_maildir.pl maintained
by Emmanuel Lacour <email@example.com>.
CLOSE RAWHIDE is not really useful for a RHEL4 Update request.
The impact of this is high enough to carry forward the request to the next
Update. In addition there other requests for this component possibly justifying
a QA slot.
Moving to the next Update, clearing all ACKs.
This issue is on Red Hat Engineering's list of planned work items

resources have been assigned and barring unforeseen circumstances, Red
Hat intends to include this item in the 4.4 release.
