The easiest way to do this would be to import the OO addressbook into
evolution. The addressbooks wouldn't be synchronized, but that would be
very difficult to do correctly. You might try writing an Evolution
importer and importing your addressbook -- I don't know how feasible
this is. It depends on the format that OO uses to store its addressbook.
You might try filing a bug report and supplying a sample OO addressbook
for us to work from, but unfortunately I doubt this would be a high
priority at the moment.

I believe OO allows you to point itself at a dBase file as a data source
either as your address book or whatever you want to call it, so it would
be nice if Evolution could export it's address book in a db format that
OO could read. Even if they are not synchronized it would still usable.
I use Staroffice 5.2 now for all my business stuff (Invoices, Proposals,
Purchase Orders etc.) and am in the process of moving to OO. All these
docs pull their fields from the address book which is great but it's a
pain to maintain both.
