Description Till Maas 2006-12-02 21:05:50 UTC
Spec URL:

OfflineIMAP is a tool to simplify your e-mail reading. With OfflineIMAP,
you can read the same mailbox from multiple computers.  You get a
current copy of your messages on each computer, and changes you make one
place will be visible on all other systems. For instance, you can delete
a message on your home computer, and it will appear deleted on your work
computer as well. OfflineIMAP is also useful if you want to use a mail
reader that does not have IMAP support, has poor IMAP support, or does
not provide disconnected operation.


Comment 1 Mamoru TASAKA 2006-12-03 09:15:59 UTC
I will review this certainly later....

Comment 2 Mamoru TASAKA 2006-12-03 14:46:01 UTC
Well, would you check the dependency for this package?
For example:
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/offlineimap/ui/ tkFont
This means this package requires tkinter. For me tkinter is required
only by python-imaging and comix (both in Extras).

Comment 3 Till Maas 2006-12-03 16:01:12 UTC
tkinter is only required when someone wants to use the tkinter user interface of
offlineimap, but there are five other user interfaces that work well. So it is
more an optional requirement, which is not supported by rpm afaik.

Comment 4 Mamoru TASAKA 2006-12-03 16:16:20 UTC
Well, then other dependencies are okay?

Comment 5 Mamoru TASAKA 2006-12-03 16:21:39 UTC
P.S. 'other' means that:
[tasaka1@localhost SPECS]$ ( for f in /usr/bin/offlineimap `rpm -ql offlineimap
| grep py$` ; do grep 'import ' $f ; done ) | sed -e 's|^[ \t]*||' | sort | uniq

Comment 6 Till Maas 2006-12-03 16:56:21 UTC
The other imports except Tk which is needed for the user interface are either
from offlineimap modules or modules in the python package which is requirement
is added by rpm. Btw. is there any tool that can help one with this dependency

Comment 7 Mamoru TASAKA 2006-12-03 17:22:24 UTC
Well, then this package meets

  This package (offlineimap) is APPROVED by me.
By the way, it seems that 4.0.16 is released.

I have several applications packaged which uses python, at which
time I always had to check python-related dependency manually...
In fact I really want that tool.

Comment 8 Till Maas 2006-12-03 18:22:04 UTC
imported and successfully built as 22865 for devel

- version bump
- added one more %%{version} to Source0
- added FAQ.html, todo to %%doc
- added debian/changelog as ChangeLog to %%doc

Comment 9 Till Maas 2006-12-03 18:30:03 UTC
Forgot to thank you for this fast review :-)
And I just noticed that the Tk Interface probably will be removed in 4.1.0 so
even this optional dependency will go away soon.
