 We have had a set of problems that we are carrying around for some time like :
   * Copyright assignments, which is not the best way looking for the 
 future of Evolution. It sucks and sort of limits contributions to Evolution 
 and we wanted to drop it.
   * The current licensing incompatibility issues of Evolution with 
 Samba4/libmapi (GPLv3). Evolution needs to link with libmapi/samba4 for the 
 new mapi based connector being developed for Exchange 2007.
 So here is the plan :
   * Drop Evolution copyright assignments and make it really easy to 
 contribute to Evolution
   * Move Evolution licensing to  LGPL v2 and LGPL v3 to let us re-use 
 the code more easily around the platform.  This also moves us closer to 
 Thunderbird's MPL/LGPL model. 
 We think this is good for Evolution and (of course) we continue to invest in 
 Evolution. We are also working to ensure we have the rights to re-license all 
 of the code. We will do the licensing/header changes as we audit the code 
 ownership situation.
 It would be really helpful if you can post a public/explicit mail with 
 permissions to do it, or code pointers - if you think you wrote a piece of 
 Evolution code  object.
 We are really excited about this and we feel this would really help Evolution 
 a lot. We need your support now for making this change and to take Evolution 
 to great heights.
 ´╗┐Thanks for your contributions and support.

  Can one of the Evolution email hackers have a look at bug 499932 [1]?
  This has been open since 2.12 and still applies to the latest stable

 I updated the bug with this text:
 I believe this has been fixed within bug #514827 and is included in 

Thanks for pointing this out. I had tried searching for POP in
Bugzilla, but didn't find the duplicates, apparently because the bug
tracker had trouble with too short words.

  Can someone check, please?

I compiled the trunk and tested it - it works. Thanks! Is this something
for the distributors to back-port to 2.22.x?

Note that Evolution trunk no longer compiles on Ubuntu 7.10/8.04 because
there only sqlite 3.4.2 is available whereas = 3.5 is required. Only
Ubuntu experimental has it. On the bright side, at least the
experimental version installs on 7.10 without pulling in other stuff -
still, this is not a recommended workaround, I'm just too lazy to also
compile libsqlite.

Is the very latest libsqlite really required? It limits the number of
users who might try out the latest beta and 2.24 when it comes out.

Bye, Patrick Ohly
