Hey,

While it is not complicated, it took me a few tries to configure IMAPFilter for Gmail. As part of a bigger project, Gmail2Gcal, I've created a Gmail config sample and thought you may want to include it.

I've thrown a CC license at the bottom of the file but you should feel free to remove that license provided that I'm listed as a contributor in the Authors file or something.

I should push the README for Gmail2Gcal in a few hours. You may want to check it out. I think it is a very cool use of your very cool program.

Neil

BTW, does IMAPFilter work on Windows? Are there any special installation instructions for it if it does run on Windows?

My guess is that it doesn't and you don't have any interest in figuring it out. I agree with that sentiment but want to make sure that I document my Gmail2Gcal project correctly.

Thanks,

Neil

This is a very interesting use of imapfilter indeed. Currently I don't plan on including sample configurations or extensions, but I'm thinking of creating a wiki that could contain a page with links to project's such as yours, along with other uses of imapfilter, examples, etc.

As far as I know, it is not possible to build imapfilter directly on Windows, but only under Cygwin.

Responding to your comment in reverse order...

Your clarification regarding Windows surprised me. It too me a minute to realize that Windoze existed without Cygwin :-) I try to avoid Windows as much as possible and, without Cygwin, it is pretty much only good for games and running Firefox.

I definitely think that a page for pointers to related projects is a good idea. IMAPFilter is a very cool program that, IMO, doesn't get the press it should.

And, regarding your "interesting use" comment, thank you kindly.

I've been thinking (always a bad sign :-) about your statement that you didn't want to add sample configurations. Are there other people who have asked you about adding configs?

If so, what do you think about me running a fork of IMAPFilter that will have "contrib" section that I'll manage?

My thought is that my fork will only have additional files to yours. I won't modify any of your source. I'll follow some agreed upon guidelines for the directory organization.

Just taking a quick look at the IMAPFilter repo, my thought is that I would create a top-level contrib directory that, I'd partition in some way or other. Perhaps by type and quality of what is contributed.

Basically, I'm volunteering to be your flunky :-)

Let me know what you think. I don't want to do this if you're not on-board with it.

That's a good idea, you can go ahead and create it, and we can see how it goes. It sounds good the way you're planning to organize it, you can always adapt it later if needed.

Whenever I have someone sending me something interesting I can point her/him to your project and you can of course contact me directly by mail if you need any support on this.
