I've been a happy user of offlineimap for a while now, and subscribed
to this mailing list a few weeks ago, and looked at how it was
packaged in fedora. And I must say that it was quite difficult to find
the tarball for the 6.3.3 release when I didn't know where to look at
it. Would it be possible to give more details about where to find
tarballs in the README, and to link to the latest tarball in the
release announcements?

Another problems I've had with the released tarballs is that they are
not really convenient to use in a .spec file because of the various
prefix/suffix appended to the "offlineimap" name, ie the one for this
release has a nicolas33 prefix, a g2d31abd suffix, and the directory
inside the tarball has another hash-like suffix. It would be more
convenient if the tarball was just offlineimap-6.3.4-rc1.tar.bz2 and
the directory inside was offlineimap-6.4.1-rc1/ Actually, the fedora
packager regenerates the tarball so that it uses this layout since it
makes life much easier, but this causes issues imo :)
