offlineimap-6.5.4 is available
Last modified: 2014-01-12 00:04:14 EST
Latest upstream release: 6.5.4
Current version in Fedora Rawhide: 126.96.36.199
Please consult the package updates policy before you issue an update to a stable branch: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Updates_Policy

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This BZ is nearly a year old and the updated version has not been packaged. Can the current package maintainer please push an update? Thank you.
Dodji, it's been a few weeks now since you said in the mailing list that you'd push an update. Any chance of it happening soon?
Phew, sorry for my long response time.
I have been testing the 6.5.5 release candidate in Rawhide for some time now and it worked for me on several diffent email accounts using Dovecot and Zimbra.
I must confess I am extremely nervous because of the idea of people loosing their email and whatnot. But Darryl, you are right about pushing :-) I have thus unleashed the dragon and and built it for Rawhide. You can get it at http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=5975511, test it, and tell me what you think.
I'll be listening.
Sorry again for the long delay.
I've tested the 6.5.5 scratch build and it works fine for me. I only had to add the cert_fingerprint configuration option for each account but, otherwise, it's been working fine.
Great. Do you guys want this to be backported to F20 and F19?
I have no actual plan on this. I know the policy is to reduce churn, but if F19's and F20 offlineimap is broken for people, maybe we should consider backports.
Otherwise, we can just leave it at that and update the package juste in Rawhide when 6.5.5 is released.

I would say release for at least Fedora 19+, if not F18. That way current and next get the benefit of the latest release.
No updates for f20 even.

Do you plan on EVER providing an update? We appreciate that it's a volunteer activity, but to just never do an update is unacceptable. Please either orphan the package or get a co-maintainer.
After a fair time of testing, I have updated the offlineimap package to the upstream 6.5.5-0 upstream release in Rawhide (F21).
As soon as F20 re-open again I'll push 6.5.5-0 there as well, and then in F19.
After that, I'll consider orphaning the package if it appears that I still don't have enough time for this.
In the mean time, If someone wants to step as co-maintainer, you are welcome.
Sorry for the time this took.
Please push 6.5.5 to f19+.
