It would be less prone to misinterpretation if it had a different name.
It's really not intended as a backup mechanism, as some people seem to
think. Perhaps Export/Import would better convey the idea.

It's difficult. To me Export/Import implies standard formats - which
the Evolution backup isn't.

Actually, what I mean is the Export/Import implies the ability to
transfer things to a different application - the Evolution backup is
only useful to Evolution.

I remember a discussion on this list, not long time ago, about a
better name to use for the evolution "Backup" feature, and perhaps
someone may have filed a bug which aimed to choose a convenient name
for it. At the moment I cannot get some precise reference (and my
memory may be wrong).

Probably me, but I never filed a BZ because I couldn't think of a good
alternative name.
