 Hello guys,

 This mail is to announce some of the role changes in the Evolution project. I 
 have been thinking about this for a long time, and I feel that this is the 
 best time to implement them.

 I am proud to announce Chenthill P (chen) as the new Evolution maintainer. He 
 is a long time contributor to the Evolution project and has been working in 
 the project for over 5 years.  He is well known in the community for his 
 expertise in Calendar component and has been its maintainer for the last 4 
 years.  He has been one of the prime contributors for the Groupwise provider 
 and Microsoft Exchange Calendar. A few of his notable contributions include 
 libical integration with System timezone for better Daylight savings support, 
 single-model-view design of Calendar MVC and removal of libical fork.   He 
 has mentored interns and GSOC students on Calendar search improvements, 
 Microsoft Exchange Delegation support, Google Calendar integration etc.

Congrats Chen and Matthew. I am sure evo will continue to rock and
make rapid strides.

Srini, great job over the past two years. Merging disk summary and
continuing improvements have made everyone sit up and take notice.


 I am also proud to announce that Matthew Barnes (mbarnes) is joining 
 Chenthill and support him as the Evolution co-maintainer. He has been 
 contributing towards Evolution for over 3 years and is the Mail maintainer 
 for the last 2 years. He has made significant contributions towards 
 obsoleting several libraries, and helping to migrate to newer technologies. 
 He has been working on Kill-Bonobo which is a major revamp of Evolution 
 Shell. This involves rewriting Evolution components and UI which is a focus 
 area for Evolution 3.0.

 Going forward, I will be focusing on improving evolution infrastructure for 
 netbooks and other devices; chen and mbarnes would be driving the Evolution 
 project direction and releases.

 Please join me in congratulating chen and mbarnes, and in wishing them good 
 luck in their new roles.

Re: [Evolution-hackers] How to create portable modules

 Greetings all,

 What configure arguments do I use to build evolution so that the following
 portability warnings don't appear:

 *** Warning: Linking the shared library
 against the loadable module
 *** is not portable!

Hey Gary,

I had a set of patches which fix these issues. They are attached
on this bug.

This was specifically done for the OSX build and somehow
failed on linux. I never really got around to checking why.

[Evolution-hackers] Google Summer of Code

2006-04-16 Thread Shreyas Srinivasan

I was just looking at the wiki about ideas for google summer of code at

I wrote one idea, its basically a re-write of e-folder-tree to make it 
understand user profiles. 

Basically this is the premise. A lot of us have about 60 folders with 
atleast 4-5 accounts. We hardly check mail in more than 4 or 5 folders. 
The UI is cumbersome to navigate through only these four or five
folders. So in a profiled view only these folders would be visible. 
Also connection handling on these folders could be a profile property. 

Right now, every time one starts up new mail is checked in either every
folder or just the INBOX, it would be nice if i could mark 4/5 folders 
to be checked at startup as a part of the profile property. This would 
mean some changes in camel too. 

What do you guys think of this idea? I am sure there are better stuff to
be done but i always thought this would be cool. Lets bounce some ideas 
so that we can get somebody from the summer of code to work on them.

 That's great news to some extend!

 Some remarks though:
 1- Can't find the read me file you mentionned
 2- Can't find the Exchange module (can't select server type Exchange)
  3- How to uninstall it?

1) The readme is here

2)  In 2.6 The exchange module does not work as a different component. Its
been integrated to work as imap, groupwise etc. So you will find account type
exchange in your create new account wizard.

Also make sure that the exchange plugin is checked in the edit-plugins tab

It should work.

3) Dude, it gets installed in /opt/gnome-2.14

delete that to uninstall it.  The installer is in /Applications move that to
