gnome-contacts is an address book and is part of the core GNOME
apps. It has all dependencies in main except for folks (which used
to be in main).
While this seems to work well in managing your e-d-s based contacts,
I'm not sure if there's a particular use for it in Ubuntu. Address
book functionality seems tied to your email client of choice which
is probably Thunderbird (installed by default, has own tools) or an
online service (e.g. GMail, and also has own tools).
Beside it can be used to view other vcard information like phone
numbers, im-addresses and Thunderbird may not be suitable for this.
The issue to include GNOME Contacts without having thunberbird
integration is the dichotomy in contact manager. Why do my contacts I
added in GNOME contact don't appear in Thunberbird and vice-versa? I
think we should look into its inclusion (which would be great, as
describe, with the nice Shell integration) if someone volounteer to look
into having it integrated with Thunderbird to only have one contact
provider on the system.
