Hello to all,
I noticed a potential problem with the new Evolution-Data-Server 1.2.
Some GnomeMeeting users do not use Evolution as mail client, but they
are still "forced" to use Evolution-Data-Server as backend in order to
store GnomeMeeting contacts in the address book.
When upgrading to Evolution-Data-Server 1.2, things do not work anymore
until they launch the new Evolution that will do an "address book
That will give a problem to all users who are not using Evolution.
One solution would be to copy the code to migrate the address book from
Evolution to GnomeMeeting, but it doesn't seem to be a good solution as
it would require to do it for all GNOME applications who are using
Wouldn't it be possible to move that "Address Book" migration code to
Evolution-Data-Server itself? If not, what other clean solution do you
