Technical Summary This document rolls together two sets of changes, one for CONDSTORE and one for QRESYNC, for the IMAP protocol. Errata have been addressed, as well as a small number of technical issues with the existing RFCs 4551 and 5162. The document is intended to obsolete both documents. Its status should be Proposed Standard, although it should be possible to elevate it relatively soon. Review and Consensus Along with the shepherd, several implementors reviewed the document and came to consensus. This discussion caught an issue relating to mod-sequence-value. More than rough consensus exists, and this is a fairly uncontroversial document. An apps directorate review was performed. All issues were resolved. There is a downref from this document to RFC 2683, which provides commonly accepted IMAP implementation recommendations. This document updates the recommendation about line-length limits. Personnel Eliot Lear is the shepherd. Barry Leiba is the responsible Area Director.
