I Need Your Cards!
To cut a long story short I've rewritten the vCard parser in Evolution but need to make sure it actually works correctly. What I'd really appreciate is for everyone out there to send me some vCards so I can build a vCard parser regression test for Evolution.
Obviously make a copy of any contacts you'll send and replace any sensitive information (change all phone numbers to 1234, all addresses to Foo Bar Street, etc). As this has to test as many corner cases as possible vCards with entirely ASCII values produced by Evolution are pretty boring. Instead I'd like:
- Cards using non-ASCII locales. Finnish, Russian, Hindi, Korean, etc are all welcomed.
- Cards produced by programs other than Evolution. Even if you don't actually use an Apple, importing a few contacts from Evolutoin into the OS X address book and then exporting them again would be good.
- Bizarre fields actually being used. I'd like to see real-world cards using the linked (instead of embedded) photos, complicated use of the TYPE fields with custom entries, etc. Note that cards from Evolution don't count here, I can produce those easily.
Thanks! Email any vCards you have to me, although you must agree that they'll hopefully end up being distributed with evolution-data-server under the LGPL.
