Hi all, I'm working on a way to be able to report detailed errors from addressbook/calendar backends to UI, so users will be able to see something more sensible than just "Other error" message in Evolution. This is bug report for this , which I'm working on right now.
Basically, with EBookBackend/EBookBackendSync was used only an EDataBookStatus code results, but after the change there will be set a GError, where backend can also report detailed information what went wrong. As this status was also used in all the Async API for EBook, then also this will be changed, to use GError instead. This is touching also signal signatures and API in views. There will be dropped all ancient GNOME_Evolution_Addressbook_ constants, as they were just hiding real values anyway. I'll also add an INVALID_ARG status error, and NOT_SUPPORTED one, because they are missing from my point of view. And I'll rename E_BOOK_ERROR_CORBA_EXCEPTION to E_BOOK_ERROR_DBUS_EXCEPTION. Similar applies to calendar part. I'll take care of evolution-data-server, evolution, evolution-exchange and evolution-mapi changes, but anything else will be just broken when the API change touches git master, and will need porting. There will be included some information about changes in the bug , but you can ask me for help, if needed. Feel free to add your thoughts to , so they can be incorporated early.
