This is my first contribution to XFCE. I needed GSSAPI support for IMAP
in the mailwatch panel plugin. So I wrote a patch to add this
functionality to the plugin, with the help of the GSSAPI implementation
in balsa. I wrote it for POP3 and IMAP because it is very similar.
What I did :
- Add a GSSAPI option in configure.ac.in, the option being disabled by
- Add the GSSAPI authentication protocol for POP3 and IMAP, prior to
the CRAM MD5 one. If no tickets are available, GSSAPI is cancelled and
classic authentication is used ; Therefore empty passwords in the
configuration have to be allowed.
- My best to respect the coding style of the plugin.
I tested it myself and it seems to work well. I attached the patch to
this message and wondered if it would be useful to open an enhancement
ticket in bugzilla, for upstream use.
