Please find the following six patches which take the next steps
towards readding IDLE support. There are at least the following known
- Hooks may not be sufficient for prompt handling of IDLE responses.
For example, there's no hook that lets me run "notmuch new" after
processing an IDLE response.
- nametrans may not be supported correctly (I haven't tried this).
- IMAP IDLE<->IMAP IDLE doesn't work. I have a couple of patches for
this, but nothing complete.
- There's an outstanding bug report that IDLE only works "once" for a
given sync -- meaning that after one IDLE response is processed, no
further IDLE request is made. I have not been able to reproduce
this, but I wouldn't be surprised to find bugs here.
These patches are also available on my github fork of offlineimap,
branches readd-idle-REBASE and readd-imap2imap-REBASE. These branches
will, as the name implies, be rebased until merged, so be warned.
