 The EDS daemons are now called e-addressbook-factory and
 e-calendar-factory. :)

Something that would IMHO make sense a lot is running each
backend-plugin for those in their own process. Maybe even each
plugin/ESource combination, although that might be something that could
be left to plugin itself to decide and might be hard to do without
breaking api.

But maybe that is planned anyways...

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  

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.


I'm ok with relicensing all the code I have contributed to evolution  
and evolution-data-server as LGPL v2.
