Would anyone object to removing the --force-migrate command-line option in future unstable releases? It seems to have outlived its usefulness, and is actually quite dangerous for the unsuspecting bleeding-edge user.
From what I can tell, it forces Evolution to migrate files from the old 1.4-era ~/evolution directory layout to our current ~/.evolution (note the dot) directory layout, presumably for testing purposes. Looks to me like it was written as a quick and temporary hack. There's a few problems with it: - Most importantly, it blows away your all your account information in GConf and your entire ~/.evolution directory without so much as an "are you sure?" prompt. - Also, it doesn't even check whether there's anything to migrate before destroying all your data. - How many users really need to migrate 1.4-era files these days anyway? If no one objects before next weekend I will remove the option in time for 2.27.5. Silence is consent. Matthew Barnes
