From: Eric Wong <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: email@example.com Subject: does "lei q" --format/-f need to exist? Date: Wed, 17 Feb 2021 03:40:32 -0100 [thread overview] Message-ID: <20210217044032.GA17934@dcvr> (raw) "maildir:/path/to/dir" has been supported by public-inbox-watch for years, now. The following all work today: lei q -o mboxrd:/tmp/foo.mboxrd ... lei q -o mboxcl2:/tmp/foo.mboxcl2 ... lei q -o maildir:/tmp/foo/ ... So -f/--format seems redundant. I'm working on on "lei import" for multiple sources, so being able to specify the type/URL-scheme on a per-source basis seems like the way to go: lei import mboxrd:/tmp/foo.mboxrd maildir:/tmp/md/ ... lei import imaps://$host/INBOX.foo nntps://$host/news.group ... And there's also "lei convert" in the wings (mainly for testing/development purposes, but could be useful stand-alone): lei convert mboxrd:/tmp/foo.mboxrd maildir:/tmp/md/
