Great! :)

This is the kind of feedback I was hoping :)

Hmmm, I am not sure we can start to think about the more than one user
access to this data with sync feature. e-d-s is now desing for personal
use, so every user will have its own contact database for local

It could be different for LDAP resources. I am not sure in the LDAP uids
will be the same in different machines, I suppose that no.

Currently, I think that if we can solve the personal sync with UIDs we
can then start to think about exchanging files and that evolution
contacts gets sync'ed.

I will implement the sync with all these issues in mind in any case :)

I am not sure also about the tasks issue, but it is easy to implement
and play with it. Hmmm, we will see.

What I need is to create a plan and that all the people in the plan can
manage the plan data easily and individually and then, feedback me all
the result and that I can integrate them back in the plan. I think the
backend for reading planner data from evolution is the way to go to do
that, yes.

Thanks Mikael, I will start hacking before in this second line:

1. Use Planner to define a plan with resources and tasks

2. Import the plan from evolution as different tasks (maybe filtering
using a user name field). Each project member will receive a copy of the
planner project and she can import it in evolution.

3. Modify the tasks detail from evolution.

4. Save the tasks back to planner using the planner e-d-s backend.

5. Integrate all the feedback in the plan (i am not sure how to do that)
