Description John Dennis 2004-11-18 17:06:52 EST
From: 	Richard Keech <rkeech@redhat.com>

hi John,

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.  
See http://people.redhat.com/rkeech/maildir-migration.txt
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
their mailboxes.

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 <elacour@home-dn.net>.

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