Just to confirm what I have read:  FC2 will NOT include the UW-IMAPD (I
didn't see this in the release notes)???

If so, and if it it true that cyrus is not a drop-in replacement, can we
start developing some upgrade documentation?  Could people who have done
this upgrade before give some details?

Is dovecot a better choice for those upgrading from UW-IMAPd?
