Many projects that were attracted to github are now successfully using
github "organizations" to provide a more official upstream for a
project. It also makes for an even better workflow with only the
maintainers pushing changes to the main upstream and lots of other
programmers just sending pull requests from their own personal github
fork of the main organization's repository.
All it would take is an email to github and they would handle moving
the nicolas33 repository over to a newly created offlineimap
organization (they actually ask that you let them do it instead of
doing it yourself.)
BTW, I'm very happy that development is continuing, so thank you!
