 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.
I didn't think my contributions were substantial enough to warrant this
but Michael poked me about it so here you go. Permission granted for any
pieces of code I've produced.

 Do you plan to do that before replacing Bonobo in the mainline

Yes, finding out why getchanges() is so damn slow is on the list of
things to do.
