I released SyncEvolution 126.96.36.199. Can you give that a try and check
whether two-way contact syncing still works when updating a contact on
I think it will. I checked with a N97 mini: it does not declare UID
support, nor does it include any UID in the contact data that it sends.
That means that the "take UID from CardDAV server before writing to it"
code will work as it is intended to when talking to such a phone.
I've tested this using a Nokia E63.
I added a dummy contact with name and a note only. Synced this from
server to phone.
I added a phone number to the contact on the phone, and an email address
to the contact on the server. Synced again.
The email address propagated to the phone contact, but the phone number
did not appear in the server contact. In fact, it disappeared from both.
I.e. both server and phone show email address and no phone number.
