ITP: prayer -- fast IMAP-based web mail system with few dependencies



retitle 392823 ITP: prayer -- fast IMAP-based web mail system with few dependencies
owner 392823 Magnus Holmgren <magnus@kibibyte.se>
thanks

I've sent some questions and comments upstream. Most notably, 

 * Prayer assumes that folders can't contain other folders, even if
   the IMAP server supports it. It appears that Dovecot with Maildir
   doesn't work very well with Prayer - all folders are treated as
   directories. Directories are containers for folders and other
   directories, but can't contain any mail. I don't know if this is
   an unavoidable problem with libc-client, or just a design mistake 
   in Prayer. Anyway Prayer probably works best with UW-imapd.

 * Currently, there is no IPv6 support. However, prayer-session uses
   libc-client to connect to the IMAP server, and IPv6 support can be
   acheived there by building with the version of libc-client currently
   in experimental.

 * The modified UTF-7 encoding isn't supported, which means that non-
   ASCII characters in folder names won't work.
