The python-evolution bindings in gutsy are too old I think. The PPA is
building python-evolution 0.0.4 for lpia, i386 and amd64 as i type. If
you install those then your Conduit should show the various Evolution
bits and pieces.

The Task, Calendar and Folder dataproviders should be fine. To sync PC
to laptop you will need to use the Network stuff that Brent mentioned,
which is probably the most experimental part of the setup.

My initial tests of the first network sync code months and months ago
showed that is what happens - its quite magical to see :-)

We've not gotten much feedback on this use case and 0.3.8 is still a
development release, so please be gentle :-)


P.S. 0.0.4 finished building already..
