In what way does it break the userspace API? Is it possible that the API could be extended in such a way that memory handling depends upon how it's called?On Sat, 2008-09-06 at 11:02 +0200, Patrick Ohly wrote:Hello!http://sourceforge.net/projects/freeassociation/ has released 0.32 of libical on 2008-09-01.

Are the evolution team as whole interested in merging their changes to libical upstream and depending on it to be installed when a release is made with all of the relevant changes? libical isn't exactly a small library, and statically linking it is a waste of memory for everyone.I vaguely recall the biggest diff being timezone handling.Not sure about that. They have merged the "system timezone database conversion" code, if that's what you mean. Unfortunately they missed the recent bug fixes required for that code to handle the upcoming summer->winter time transition. We really should have been more active with keeping them informed about Evolution-libical changes. I have alerted them and the KDE-PIM team of the problem. However, they haven't included the modified memory handling. Considering that this breaks the user space API merging it might be a hard sell.I'll happily start working on extracting the changes to EDS and pushing them into the new libical repository, if the Evolution team as a whole agrees that the fork of libical will be dropped.+1+1 from my side too. We were discussing about this at http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=541209 and wanted the changes to be merged upstream. We wanted to get this done for 2.26. thanks, Chenthill
We would *really* like to get everyone merged and re-unify this library once and for all. Everyone would benefit.
