Subject: RFH: balsa -- An e-mail client for GNOME
Date: Sun, 25 Sep 2011 15:54:27 +0200
Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I request assistance with maintaining the balsa package. Nobody in the 
GNOME team is actually using it anymore, and only RC issues are fixed at 
the moment. It is vastly inferior to evolution, but it is also a decent 
lightweight alternative for those in need for it.

The package description is:
 Balsa is a highly configurable and robust mail client for the GNOME desktop.
 It supports both POP3 and IMAP servers as well as the mbox, maildir and mh
 local mailbox formats. Balsa also supports SMTP and/or the use of a local MTA
 such as Sendmail.
 .
 Some of Balsa's other features include:
   * Allowing nested mailboxes
   * Printing
   * Spell Checking
   * Multi-threaded mail retrieval
   * MIME support (view images inline, save parts)
   * GPE Palmtop, LDAP, LDIF and vCard address book support
   * Multiple character sets for composing and reading messages
   * File attachments on outgoing messages
   * GPG/OpenPGP mail signing and encryption
 .
 Support for Kerberos and SSL has been enabled in this package.

Ah right, I forgot we already had someone interested /o\

Please take it over when you have the time. We will remove it from the
pkg-gnome repository when it’s done.

Thanks,
