evolution-webcal module isn't maintained by the Evolution team. I think
Rodney (dobey) maintains it.

Blame it on me. We do have a gnome-2-20 branch and I normally do the
tagging and commit of configure, NEWS, ChangeLogs on Wednesday's (Day of
release). Unfortunately I'm sick for the past three days and I haven't
had a touch of my laptop apart from any emergency emails/issues. Just
today I have done it. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Jules, No we work ONLY with svn.gnome.org and whatever we do are with
GNOME SVN only. You may see some small-random patches with OpenSUSE but
otherwise there is nothing else hidden here.
