Whatever the decision is, I think we should endeavour to make it

website into the 6.2.5 tree on my copy and begin working on the IMAP UID
implementation (in fact, I'm doing this right now). I've briefly
skimmed the patches and don't see a lot of potential conflicts, but
right now anyone who's going to be doing any work has no stable codebase
to base their work off of. I think if we want to kick start
development, I think we need a source code repository and an active
maintainer, and I know I'd like to see those sooner rather than later.

Agreed; everything here sounds good.
I suppose your not interested in coordinating releases, though, since
you no longer use fetchmail? Given that you are a backup maintainer,

commit access to some central repository. That individual or group can
then choose whichever hosting solution is best for them.
I'll go ahead and throw my system out there as a potential system to run
CVS (or anythign else for that matter) from. It's not the beefiest box,
but it is very reliable, has plenty of space, and sits on a fat pipe. I
don't know that we really need to sign up for any of the open source
development websites, as I'd be happy to host anything we need
(bugzilla, mailing lists, CVS/Subversion, etc).
There's obviously numerous bugs people have reported recently, and quite
a few wishlist items people would like to see implemented. As soon as
we can all agree on a codebase to start coding from I think we could
probably get fetchmail stable again shortly. I know there's a lot of
cleanup to be done (removing pop3 LAST support and pop2 support from the
codebase would be good for starters. Sorry, no one uses Pop2 anymore
and there's plenty of archives for old fetchmail versions if they need it).
