That is an encouraging sign.

At the moment, I think the project needs a maintainer.  Somebody to 
integrate patches and make releases.  Evidence is that people are 
interested in OfflineIMAP and some are making patches, which is great. 
It needs someone to organize that effort...  and to anyone reading this, 
THAT COULD BE YOU!  It doesn't have to take a lot of time.  It just 
requires a certain level of interest and engagement.

Some background on this can be found at:

Incidentally, I am retired so I no longer have an "OfflineIMAP 
maintainer" hat I'm wearing as I write this.  This is just my own two cents.
