If I understand your question correctly, the answer is no, and at least I have no plans for something like that. An nmbug / notmuch-git repo only contains metadata, not the actual messages. > 2.

Does it make sense to have > another backend for Notmuch than Maildir? I don't know grokmirror, it looks like a layer on top of git. You can commit maildir to git if you like, notmuch doesn't really care. As far as having a backend that is not just mail files on disk, that seems unlikely, but I guess you never know. > 3.

You can use notmuch-slurp-debbug (from mailscripts) to get the mail messages. I haven't thought about synchronizing metadata with debbugs. In principle I guess it should be possible. d _______________________________________________ notmuch mailing list -- email@example.com To unsubscribe send an email to notmuch-le...@notmuchmail.org
