Hi fellow hackers!! I have been working for a while during last week on one the blockers in evolution - https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=550414 - 'Folder and summary mismatch error'(old one - https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=213072). As a matter of fact we have been working as a team to get the blockers down. I have not been able to reproduce the issue or yet find the exact problematic area.
The mismatch in the frompos index in the folder summary may be caused by either a threading issue or a crash while storing the indexes. I am still investigating it to find the real cause. Looking at other issues such as, https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=522433 - 'Fails opening mbox > 2GB', just got a thought if we could solve both the issues by, Approach #1, migrating local storage from mbox to maildir format. With maildir I have heard about two issues, * Not able to create subfolders under INBOX - https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=536240 . Approach #2, Migrate from a single mbox file per folder to mbox per email. Srini mentioned an advantage that this would avoid the file renames that maildir does. I think this is much like how other remote providers in evo store the email. I thought of bring this in this list to gather more opinions to choose the right one. The approach #2 seems a better one as we are choosing a way for storing the messages internally in evo. Are we missing to see anything while we choose the second one ? One advantage which I see with #1 is that its a standard way. Thanks, Chenthill. _______________________________________________ Evolution-hackers mailing list Evolutionfirstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/evolution-hackers
