Both, I am afraid. The author has not been using it himself for some
time, and has just decided to orphan it. See the offlineimap mailing
list archives and the /usr/share/doc/offlineimap/ files.
Small fixes are probably easy: my python is very rusty and I am short of
time, but I suspect the current problems are trivial to fix.
In passing, for those thinking of thunderbird: yes it works, but it
is very very slow for synching with imap servers and far less
flexible that something like offlineimap + mutt.
