Sorry, the Google CardDAV interoperability kept me and the nightly build
machine busy.


No problem.
 
I enabled provideruoa.so compilation on Ubuntu Saucy and will include it
in the next SyncEvolution 1.4.99.2. I hesitate to say next week again,
but that actually is the goal.


Also not a problem.

I checked, enabling that would indeed be problematic. The backend
depends on the C++ version of xmlrpc, which changed the ABI between
Ubuntu Saucy and Trusty. If I compiled on Saucy (which is fairly easy to
do because I have the distro already set up for compiling some part of
the binary release), then the backend won't work on Trusty.

I'd prefer to not spend more effort on offering a binary which only one
user asked for at the moment.


And no objections to that at all. I'll see what I can put together, knowing that these can be compiled and loaded separately. In the end, I want a scriptable backend, I just figured that if xmlrpc was already there, an xmlrpc proxy would be easier to create than a new SyncEvolution backend.

Thanks,
