Yes, a code fork is a bad idea, but this is not a code fork.
The separate CVS repository was my idea and I still think it is a good idea.
The code, which goes into official IMAP repository must be reviewed by a commiter and it has
to be stable.
I generally support this model, because it has advantages, but it blocks the current development
for IMAP.

For development and testing IMAP code, it is important to have the latest code.
For that, we can use a separate CVS repository for IMAP, which provides latest even completely
IMAP code. If there is again a somehow stable code, it will be commited to official CVS repository
in the usual way.
This way commiters are not bothered to much, the "stable code requirement" is fulfilled and
development for latest code is guaranteed. Therefore I think it is a good idea.

I convinced Sascha Kulawik, to use this new (still not existing) repository, and I will use
it too.
Is there anybody else, who wants to use it, and is there anybody who does not want to use
it ?

I consider the currently unstable IMAP code as biggest disadvantage of James. We must
fix this as soon as possible, and I think the IMAP code should move from proposals into main
as soon as possible.
