Description of problem:
Currently, Dovecot is not built with the Solr search plugin enabled. Building the Solr plugin does not add any build time or runtime dependencies, and makes connecting to an external indexing server to provide full text search easier.
Dovecot version dovecot-1.2.11-3
added to dovecot-1.2.11-4.fc13
dovecot-1.2.11-4.fc13 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 13.
It's actually adding build-time and run-time dependencies on libcurl and expat but I don't think either of those is a big deal.
yes, I know, but these libraries are so deep that there can hardly be any system (fedora/rhel) without them already installed.
Yes, Dovecot talks with Solr over XML/HTTP (hence expat + curl). I hope it's fine for you...
