Dovecot and OAuth2 and gmail

Hi all,

I'm not sure Dovecot has anything to do with this, but I'd rather ask
and know for sure.

I do the following:

Gmail IMAP=>fetchmail=>procmail=>Dovecot IMAP

Then, I view my Dovecot hosted email with Claws-Mail.

I understand that on May 31, 2022, current methods to access Gmail IMAP
will turn into pumpkins because of insistence on OAuth2. Do I need to
do anything to Dovecot to get ready for this Mass Extinction Event?

Do you think I'll need to dump fetchmail for something else?
