I didn't know that berkeley is beeing removed, so skiplist will be the only
We are using (kolab-) cyrus 2.2. The reason why we're using berkeley is that
it is (was?) recommended instead of skiplist, but that information is maybe
outdated. Nevertheless, we recently ran into corrupted seenstate files for
the first time (we usually had problems with corrupted mailboxes.db und
annotations.db). So we changed the seenstate file to berkeley as well - and
got the problems with the directories.
I just had a look at the kolab changelog and found this:
kolab/issue840 (Annotations needs to be more robust (skiplist
problems)) as the now integrated imapd-2.3.13
(see below) has additional skiplist fixes and
the switch to berkeley-db for mailboxes.db
and annotations.db introduced new problems we
switched back to skiplist as default.
So yes, my patch won't make much sense in recent installations.
