What bug is tracking the "unread mails vfolders might not work well"
issue you refer to above?

I'm wondering why this simple question has not been answered.  I'm not
usually the type to be demanding or expecting from open source projects,
but in this case, it seems that Evolution 2.24 has been called "final"
FAR too early.  My guess is that there was pressure to get a release out
the door timed with Gnome and the result of that pressure was releasing
something that was plain and simply not ready yet. is the bug for it. I'm
looking forward to fix it next week.

I've filed numerous bugs on basic functionality that simply doesn't work
(i.e. GSSAPI, vFolders, mailbox mis-naming) and not a single one of them
has even been triaged yet.  Is the number of bugs that you are
frantically trying to fix for 2.24.1 so large that you cannot even
triage basic functionality bugs such as I have posted?

Brian, see what happens is that its the time, just after the release
most of us take offs and vacations. Infact, we know some issues and we
are fixing also. Just check today's code drop on stable branch, you
would understand that we are really fixing issues for 2.24.1. It has
some basic arch changes, that made us break ABI and so much of changes
there. Infact, I'm looking for a release sometime next week, as
the changes are substantial to have a mid-point-release. Also our QA is
on a long vacation and back just last week and its holiday period in
India. I hope you understand.

You folks do realize that this "final" 2.24.0 is going to ship with
Ubuntu's Intrepid release right (unless they decide to pull it at the
last minute -- which without a 2.24.1 I would certainly recommend they
do)?  With such basic functionality problems I can't imagine the
landslide of complaints and unhappiness that you are going to experience
with this release.  There is no way I can see my way clear to letting a
userbase loose on 2.24.0 at this point in time.

If Ubuntu decides to wait till 2.24.1, I'm none to stop it. AFAICS, I'm
in touch with Seb who packages Evo for Ubuntu and I'm working on some of
his top blockers.
