Using "make update-copyrights" after setting GNULIB_PATH in my config.mak
2020-11-05doc/standards: add RFCs for URL schemes
We linkify these in the WWW UI, and will support them in other places. These URL schemes may end up being stored in external/detached indices for indexing non-git-based mail stores.
2020-11-04nntp: delimit Newsgroup: header with commas
...instead of spaces. This is specified in RFC 5536 3.1.4. Include references to RFC 1036, 5536 and 5537 in our docs while we're at it. Reported-by: Andrey Melnikov <temnota.am@gmail.com> Link: https://public-inbox.org/meta/CA+PODjpUN5Q4gBFQhAzUNuMasVEdmp9f=8Uo0Ej0mFumdSwi4w@mail.gmail.com/
2020-08-23searchidx: index THREADID in Xapian
This is the `tid' column from over.sqlite3; and will be used for IMAP and JMAP search (among other things).
2020-07-10doc: standards: link IMAP capabilities and response codes
We'll be implementing some IMAP search/threading extensions in IMAP and providing analogues over HTTP via JMAP.
2020-06-13imap: support 8000 octet lines
RFC 2683 section recommends it: > For its part, a server should allow for a command line of at least > 8000 octets. This provides plenty of leeway for accepting reasonable > length commands from clients. The server should send a BAD response > to a command that does not end within the server's maximum accepted > command length. To conserve memory, we won't bother reading the entire line before sending the BAD response and disconnecting them.
2020-06-13imap: support IDLE
It seems to be working as far as Mail::IMAPClient is concerned.
2020-06-13doc: add some IMAP standards
There's more, but IMAP is big and complex already.
2020-03-20doc: standards: add references to RFC 5322 (and RFC 822)
RFC 5322 is the latest one in this line, but much documentation and even command-line options in other programs (e.g. git) refer to RFC 2822 or even RFC 822.
2020-02-08doc: mark some TODO items as done
NNTP TLS and COMPRESS support and cgit spawning from the WWW interface were implemented last year. Given the lack of syscall number stability guarantee on the OpenBSD and FreeBSD, I don't think supporting a pure-Perl kevent is feasible. Inline::C may still be an option since IO::KQueue is abandoned, though, as it is for some Linux-only syscalls and maybe some POSIX ones not covered by POSIX.pm.
2020-02-08doc: update copyright for standards.perl
It was missing "(C)", so gnulib update-copyright missed it.
2020-02-06treewide: run update-copyrights from gnulib for 2019
I didn't wait until September to do it, this year!
2019-04-29doc/standards: add a link to PSGI specs
2019-04-23doc: add standards reference
Incomplete at the moment, but this ought to be a handy reference for both implementers and users alike.
