I got this working today. Would anyone object if I create the gnome-3-2
branch early next week so I can commit this for 3.3.1 and then rebase my
account-mgmt branch on it?
Indeed libebackend was the better place for EExtension. In addition, I
created a few new classes in libebackend:
These new classes factor out some of the common pieces of their
libedata-book and libedata-cal counterparts and serve as abstract base
classes for them. Additionally, EDataFactory now handles all the module
