I just sent a patch around this area of our documentation. In order to
test OfflineIMAP or a recent feature in it, you have to:

* clone the official repository
* checkout the next branch: 'git checkout -t origin/next'
* install:
  - make clean
  - make
  - (as root) python install
* update this branch in a regular basis

I'll add nicer documentation in the FAQ for our testers. It tends to be
a very common question, here.

Thanks for testing OfflineIMAP.
