I came to the conclusion that things are good enough as is. An official
website is a very enjoying idea but I don't think it's the good time to
do so.

Let's the transition finish so that we all be ready to achieve new
things and improve the OfflineIMAP's planet. ,-)

You're welcome.

While doing so, I think it would be valuable to document some core
design implementation in an external file to help all of us not that
familiar with the code. Nothing well documented or detailled so we don't
have to worry about maintaining it that much in the long term.

(This is just an idea; I won't be fustrated you're not starting it.)
