[needs-packaging] dovecot-plugin-listescape

Bug #365402 reported by Richard Hansen on 2009-04-23
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

listescape is a Dovecot plugin written by Dovecot's author (Timo Sirainen). This plugin is included in Dovecot 1.2, which is currently at rc3.

From the listescape web page:

Listescape plugin allows users to use characters in mailboxes names that would otherwise be illegal, for example:

    * Maildir++ layout disallows using '.' character since it's used internally as the hierarchy separator.
    * '~' character at the beginning of the mailbox name is disallowed, because of the possibility that it gets expanded to user's home directory.
    * '/' character is disallowed with all layouts (if it's not the hierarchy separator).

Listescape plugin allows you to use all of these characters, as long as the virtual separator is changed to something else. The characters are escaped to the mailbox name as \NN hex codes.
