Description

I started to learn git use and made a github fork from the haiku master tree (I think): https://github.com/Karvjorm/haiku

Then I started to refactor E-Mail preference because the localized texts (in Finnish and German, for example) are quite badly shown sometimes.

My meaning was not to touch the mail add-ons, but some testing purpose change were with some commit.

Then I tried to make git format-patch but for some reason it did not succeed. But when I did git push, it pushed my local commits to github. I wonder, if some developer has time to review and maybe test my refactoring changes (I have tested in English, Finnish and German) there.

Please have a look at https://github.com/axeld/haiku/commits/imap - I've already converted the complete Mail Kit to use the layout API.

It will get merged as soon as I have IMAP in a working state again. If acceptable, it could get merged before, but then only POP3 will work for some time. Since IMAP is broken for almost everyone, this might even be acceptable.

I'm sorry that you wasted your time; git makes it a bit harder to track what's going on in the Haiku world. If you plan on continuing developing Haiku, it's a good idea to subscribe to the haiku-commits mailing list -- it will also get the commits for the private repositories of a number of our developers. Including my imap rework which turned into a complete mail kit rework.
