mairix is a program for indexing and searching email messages stored
offline on your computer.  mairix supports the Maildir, MH folders,
and mbox formats.
Some features:
* Indexing is fast. It runs incrementally on new messages - any
particular message only gets scanned once in the lifetime of the
index file.
* Searching is fast.
* The search mode populates a "virtual" maildir folder with symlinks
which point to the real messages. This folder can be opened as usual
in your mail program.
* Indexing and searching is based on words. The index file tabulates
which words occur in which parts (particular headers + body) of which

mairix (0.23+git20131125-0.3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Fix FTBFS on systems with C locale. The test suite depends on having an
en_US.UTF-8 locale setup.
* Disable fix-test-suite.patch. For some reasons, that patch is only needed
when building outside of a minimal build environment... thus the
difference of locale (en_US.UTF-8 vs my fr_FR.UTF-8) doesn't explain
