Re: [Evolution-hackers] (webbased) remote client on evolution's data

I've started exploring how evolution stores it's data.
As far as i found out everything is stored in Berkeley v3 DB-Files.
So that looks to me as if it should be generally possible to 
create a client that visualizes that data.
But since it wouldn't be a good idea to work directly on the 
db-files i need some point to start exploring evolution's interfaces
so i can use them instead of working on the db-files directly.

Any help on how to start is highly appreciated by me.
