[rms39 columbia edu: Re: Cooperation with balsa]

I have just had a conversation about the ongoing work on gnomecard and
possible data exchange with balsa.


balsa should not rely too much on gnomecard. Kind of sad.

I consider gnomecard almost unsupported- it has a lot of bugs, I 
don't know much about the code, and don't have the time or 
inclination to learn it.  Personally, I keep my address information 
in a text file ~/phone, but I guess I'll try out the Evolution 
contact manager when that's ready.

Sorry to not be so helpful, but I thought you should know that not a 
lot of development effort is going into gnomecard.  You or someone 
from your team is free to take over maintenance of it, however, if 
you need/want to develop it.
