[As Srini asked me to do this,]

I approve the planned license change for all of the code I ever
contributed to Evolution.

 Hey Paolo,
 As you are aware, we are in the process of re-licensing(See the attached 
 mail), we are
 now contacting all the code committers for explicit permission mails. We have 
 contacting almost 85% of the people. You have also committed some amount of 
 code for 
 Evolution. Can you approve the license change for the code you wrote?
 Looking forward for much more contributions from you :-)

I think I only committed *after* you announced the relicensing :-)

That said, sure, I give permission to relicense any contribution I made.

  Hello guys,
  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.

Permission granted for any code I've produced.

[Evolution-hackers] External editor plugin

2008-09-16 Thread Marco Túlio Gontijo e Silva

I wanted to addapt the external editor plugin for evolution to work more
or less as this feature in claws-mail.  I think it should be invoked
from the composer, and edit only the body of the mail, no the To:
Subject: etc fields; and to be able to configure it to run automaticaly
when the composer started.  I've never wrote a plugin for evolution, and
I started reading the docs, but I haven't found any part talking about
the composer, so I wondered if this is possible.  What do you think of
the idea?

I noticed that [0] and [1] are differents.  What version should I use?
