I'm the only maintainer at the moment, so e-mailing this address is
fine. (There's no libgdata mailing list.)

Building libgdata from git won't work, since there are a number of API
and ABI breakages in master which will probably cause the e-d-s build to
choke (though Evolution itself should be OK). I'd advise you to use the
libgdata-0-6 branch.

introspection.m4 should be provided by gobject-introspection, and I
believe their official advice is not to distribute it in individual
packages' source trees.
