Bug#579816: ITP: mswatch -- watch mailstores for changes and initiate mailbox syncs


first, thanks for ITPing this package. I use mswatch on several
computers for some years now and already thought about packaging it

I think the package description is somewhat misleading:

"mswatch is a command line unix program that keeps two mailboxes

IMHO mswatch is a tool to _help_ keeping mailboxes synchronized, and it
depends on other tools for this. This is part of the second paragraph,
but it could be made more prominent.

I would also mention that mswatch needs to be installed on the remote
computer, too, because it doesn't work with standard mail protocols
such as IMAP and POP3. Of cause, this restriction can be described as
an advantage, together with the benefits from the second paragraph.

I'd be glad to help you packaging mswatch.
