The Evolution team has put a great deal of effort into moving off of deprecated libraries and API, which (except for the GnomeCanvas issue) we're just about finished with. Migrating Evolution and E-D-S off of Bonobo has been a seismic shift for the project, and while we're still dealing with some aftershocks I think we're on track for having the remaining issues worked out by 2.30, if not sooner. So I think we could be ready for a March release of GNOME 3.0 if that's what release team decides on. That said, historically "rock-solid" and "Evolution" are seldom used in the same sentence, and I know that we could certainly benefit from an extra six months to focus on polishing and bug-fixing.
