Description Ian Weller 2009-09-26 01:52:32 UTC
offlineimap version 6.2.0 is available upstream.

Comment 1 Christoph Höger 2009-10-23 18:43:43 UTC
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.

Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2009-11-16 12:57:41 UTC
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:

Comment 3 Sven Lankes 2010-03-29 18:59:48 UTC
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.

Thread 'Account sync Work' terminated with exception:

Comment 4 Christoph Höger 2010-04-14 11:37:53 UTC
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.

Comment 5 J.H.M. Dassen (Ray) 2010-06-12 19:12:20 UTC
The upstream maintainer of offlineimap is retiring; see http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/offlineimap-project/2010-May/000131.html

I would appreciate an update of offlineimap in F13. With the current package, I was running into bug #596310 whereas I haven't had any crashes since updating to a local git HEAD build of offlineimap.

Comment 11 Mark Wielaard 2010-09-30 22:15:27 UTC
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
 attribute 'replace'

And nothing syncs. Is that a known issue with the new version?

Comment 12 Mark Wielaard 2010-09-30 22:34:35 UTC
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.
