Implement them. Evolution doesn't use them as far as I know but get_contact_list and get_contact will be used by other applications. get_changes is used by syncing tools such as OpenSync. > The other thing I can't get to work is authentication.

To be honest I've only looked at the backends which don't require authentication. I suggest you read the LDAP backend. At a guess, make you sure implement get_surpported_auth_methods. Also you'll want to call e_book_backend_notify_connection_status.
