Using gnome2 since its beginning, I very much like the direction it's
heading towards, and noticed one bigger issue: PIM. gnome-pim
obviously didn't get the port to gnome2, and by now evolution took
that over in a way, but mostly for calendar-stuff only imho.
I've been missing a stand-alone contact manager too, so I started to
work on one last month. But it is written for the ROX-Desktop, which is
based on Gnome technology, but it's a desktop shell of its own.
I would however be willing to maintain a Gnome-HIG compliant version in
parallel, if there was enough interest. It's a small app and will stay
that way, so that wouldn't be a big deal.
As for "architecture". Heaven, you people always think way too
complicated. Currently my application stores all contacts as seperate
vcards into ~/Contacts. Create a ContactsPath gconf-key, so you can
include different sources, and you have your "architecture".
I plan to submit a patch for Balsa. Currently Balsa expects vcards as
one big chunk only. You can't import a whole folder. I don't know how
evolution handles that. I guess it's the same problem there.
Here is my "Contacts" app:
