offlineimap version 6.2.0 is available upstream.
Are there any new features that anybody really needs? I'd rather like to wait for some patches I submitted upstream. But obviously the upstream maintainer has not much time currently.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
6.2.0 has a feature that is pretty important to me: It works
With 6.1.2 i get the following error when trying to sync my @work-email. Works fine with 6.2.0.

Sorry for the late reply, notify mail got burried.
As upstream is rather dead (especially for the patches I submitted) I am going to do the update (which should be simple) as soon as I get my fingers on a stable f13 box.
If anyone wants to step in and co-maintain: Feel free to do so.
Please note: offlineimap 6.20 does not use imaplib2 anymore. Therefore there will be no IDLE support anymore.
The upstream maintainer of offlineimap is retiring; see http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/offlineimap-project/2010-May/000131.html

After the update in f13 today I am getting:
***** Processing account Main
Copying folder structure from IMAP to Maildir
Establishing connection to localhost:9993.
WARNING: Error occured attempting to sync account Main: 'NoneType' object has no
And nothing syncs. Is that a known issue with the new version?
It can be worked around by explicitly adding an line like:
remotepass = mypassword
to your .offlineimaprc file.
I haven't been able to make interactive password entry work yet.
