Very cool, arch, suse and gentoo are my great guinea pigs (SCNR :-)). Thanks!

Right, that would have been me. Actually, I am a bit unsure how we
should handle the documentation in the future. I want to extend the user
documentation with use cases etc as currently in dev-doc-src and visible
on But MANUAL.rst is the man page being created
and I don't feel like repeating myself there with duplicate information
of what is in the docs.

Would it be acceptable to create a rather short "MANUAL.rst" for a man
page that minly refers to the main docs? I think it would be more useful
to have an offlineimap.conf(5) man page that describes the possible
options, but to be honest I don't know how to create that :).

I'll try to clean up the .rst errors soonish.
