I would be very happy to contribute.  The thing that has *always* held
me back is this: whatever other features offlineIMAP has, the one
thing it must be able to promise is that no mail will get lost as a
result of using it.  This is a hard problem, given the nature of IMAP
and the odd corner cases that I expect can arise.

If I knew that there were rigorous regression tests in place that
would prevent any change from causing mail to be lost, then I would
contribute very happily.
