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.
