Is there anything that would keep us from adding some fields to vcards?
Wouldn't it be good if each person could add skills/experience/pay rate
to their vcards? That way, if you've got a bunch of friends who give
you vcards with their skill set and you're interested in starting a Free
Software project, but you don't have 90 hours in a day, you can search
your contacts folder for people who have the skills you need.
Moreover, these data should not be stored in a flat file accessible
easily only by Evolution. Take advantage of Gnome-db and make the data
publicly available. On the local system if not on LDAP. Duplication of
data == ick.
Specifically, I'd like to integrate my contact list with MrProject. It
would make me happy if I could DnD contacts from Evo to MrProject rather
than typing in Name, Email, Phone number.
How can I help?
