be nice if syncevolution worked out of the box on Ubuntu. Has anybody
experienced similar issues? Is it possible to fix that package?
I don't know how amenable Ubuntu is to accepting new upstream releases
into a Long Term Service release like Lucid. Perhaps it could go into
Lucid Updates or Backports?
