 Anyone have any thoughts on this?  If I file a bug, should it go to
 evolution, or something like gtkhtml or libxml or something else?
 I'm not really clear on the breakdown in responsibility for the Gnome
 components in Evo.

When in doubt I'd just file it for evolution (and I suppose I'd also
mention my doubts about which module is at fault). If another module is
to blame, the report will get transferred to it (eventually).

[Evolution-hackers] [CamelStore] clarifying of documentation becomes a minor change of code

2008-09-01 Thread Paul Bolle
I wanted to clarify the documentation for camel_store_free_folder_info()
a bit. In found myself altering its implementation. Rationale is
(obviously) to simply make sure that camel_store_free_folder_info()
handles a NULL return of camel_store_get_folder_info() gracefully so my
documentation change is actually always correct. Any comments on this
(entirely untested) change before spamming b.g.o.?

Evolution shouldn't do that. Known bug? Andre?

Did you mean LGPLv2 _or_ LGPLv3 here?

Anyway, I am not familiar with libmapi, but it does indeed seem to be
(what is commonly referred to as) a library that is licensed under the
GPLv3. According to the FSF you can't release a project under the LGPLv2
or LGPLv3 if you want to use a library under GPLv3. You'll have to
convert your LGPLv2 or LGPLv3 code to the GPLv3 [1]. So, if I'm reading
your plan and the FSF GPL faq correctly, your plan wouldn't work (as far
as libmapi is concerned).

Am I reading your plan and the faq correctly?
