Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 207654
Support for Kolab annotations
Last modified: 2008-07-31 11:00:54 EDT
Description of problem:
Unpatched cyrus imap server cannot be used as a kolab2 client, since it doesn't
support the required annotations (/vendor/kolab/...)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
All cyrus-imapd versions
Just try to use e.g. Toltec Connector, it will say annotations not supported.
Steps to Reproduce:
I attached a patch which works with all current kolab clients, and absolutely
That would be nice if it can be added till FC6 release!
Created attachment 136936 [details]
Some custom annotations which are neccessary for kolab2 clients.
Any chances that this patch will be included?
Did you try to put it upstream? Would they accept it?
I posted it to:
and also filed a bug report in cyrus bugzilla, which I cannot reach currently...
This patch is a bit kolab-specific, so maybe it'll not accepted upstream, but it
would be good to have in Fedora (as I see there are more complex patches in the
Fedora version, this one is very simple and non-intrusive).
What is the bz number in cyrus bz? I'd like to Cc it.
I'm not sure whether I like the idea of having such vendor-specific patch in the
package. I'd rather help with reviewing and testing Thomas' patch (
http://vman.de/cyrus/ ) since that seems to be better and more general solution.
Btw, accoring to the ietf drafts, the vendors must be registered and x-toltec is
not, according to http://www.iana.org/assignments/acap-registrations .
I like Thomas' patch, I also thinked that going to implementing the same
idea...I'll try testing.
According to the x-toltec annotation, the author of Toltec Connector said that
he will change this after something for this problem goes upstream.
Here's the bugreport for cyrus (my comment is #8):
But this is the same as mentioned in http://vman.de/cyrus/
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.
If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)
Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.
The process we're following is outlined here:
We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
Kolab server has choosen Thomas Viehmann's patch, so I'm wondering if the
Fedora version can include it.
But we need that CMU will choose the patch. So try to ping them in their bugzilla.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
