My reasons for sticking with 1.2 are:
1. It just works.
2. I couldn't come up with an easy scheme that allows me to realistically
test a 2.x setup for a limited set of users (including the ability to
revert them to 1.2 at any time) while running the 1.2 setup for the bulk
of users, the problem being the format of index files has changed.
Normally, I would set up a new installation in parallel and ask my
colleagues to use that server instead of imap.math.uni-bonn.de, but in
case only one of them fails to switch only one of their gadgets to use
the new IMAP, we may run into serious problems like index corruption or
mails lost due to synchronisation problems.
I could use a toy user for the tests, but that would fail to test the
Plus I would need to find a way to test the 2.x LDA uncluding Sieve.
