[Evolution-hackers] Code Freeze Break Requests


 Requesting your approval for committing the following 3 separate
patches, details provided below.

Patch #1

Bug :           http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=324118 

Description :   Remove IMAP4rev1 from stable releases

Package:        Evolution-Data-Server

Impact : 

 The IMAP4rev1 provider code which was introduced as an experimental
alternative for the default IMAP provider has not received any
coding/bug fixing love for quite some time and has not received any
takers for active maintenance. In this scenario, we want to actively
discourage users to continue using this provider as we do not plan to
support it in future and there are no migration paths available.

Patch #1 makes this IMAP4rev1 a conditional feature which is turned off
by default.

Patch #2
Bug :           http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=350250

Description :   Show my message list from the cache first

Package:        Evolution-Data-Server

Impact : 

Evolution (IMAP) fails to read the message list available in the cache
and fetches it from the network resulting in a delayed response by the
UI in displaying the messages. On large accounts, the user encounters a
blank message list for several minutes before the items appear.
This is a spoiler for much of the performance gains that have been
achieved in this release.

This was a side-effect caused by a commit ( refer
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=350250#c2 ) and the mail
hackers have decided on reverting this patch.

Patch #3
Bug :           http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=353763

Description :   cannot enter text or edit memo summary field

Package:        Evolution

Impact : 

Creation/Modification of Personal Memo items in the Local File system
rendered impossible as the summary/content widgets are not sensitized.
This breaks the feature in its entirety.

Note: Patch #3 has been accidentally committed before this request was
mailed. My sincere apologies on behalf of the team - I will ensure this
gets reverted prior to the release, should the request be turned down.

I will be reachable by mail or in IRC #evolution for any clarifications.
