OK, makes sense. Then you will be glad to know that I based all my
patches that I sent to the list the last couple of days against your
master :-).

Looking forward to hear about our future branching model.

So far, I plan to have the tests run with a "python --server
user at --passwd fooboo" and have the test suite run that.
I hacked together a test that does a simple Maildir->Maildir sync, just to
discover that offlineimap does not support this mode :-).

I am not sure that the git project is the prime example for intuitive
usability. ;) But as long as there is no outstanding amount of bugs,
sure, let's try to use the mailing list. I'll keep my private tracker on
for the time being in any case.

OK, will do that. I just hope nobody is annoyed when I clutter up their
email boxes with my patches and their successors :).

All other patches that I mailed as top-level threads the last days are
still valid, I will resend the series from the thread "Patches updated
to nicolas/pu" then (not today though).
