Just a question:
Cyrus keeps a backup copy of the ACL for each mail folder in the
When doing a reconstruct -r -f, the ACL from the cyrus.header file is
taken over and copied over to the mailboxes.db.
I can imagine situations where this is not what you want.
Unfortunately, deleting the cyrus.header file is not an option, for two
1. One needs to preserve the UID of the folder to make sure the xxx.seen
and xxx.sub databases can still be matched.
2. Without a cyrus.header file, the folder will not be reconstructed at all.
Would it make sense to prepare a patch which would introduce an
--ignore-acl or --acl=mailboxesdb|filesystem switch to reconstruct?
