Do you really have to? 'pu' stands for 'proposed updates'. Topics here
won't be merge to the next release unless more work have been done.

The good branch you should fork off is master.

Sorry, I been away these days. Yes, topics that have proven to enhance
OfflineIMAP in a good way (tested, etc) have good chances to be merged.
There is sometimes good reasons to not keep a topic but it will always
be discussed before and explaining why.

Nice. I like this idea. You may want to send your topics early or even
in an experimental state. This would save you a lot of time if something
goes wrong and will help people to keep track on your work.

Starting by the test suites is the best thing to do. This is where
OfflineIMAP really fail, FMPOV.

I didn't open a issue trackers because I want to. Encourage people to
use this mailing list is the best thing as it is where problems have
most chances to hit someone which can help.

I'll look at your series.
