It's fairly well modularized. See the Mandriva package list:
all you really need installed for it to work at a basic level is the
main package, emailadmin (the setup process won't complete without it),
etemplate and calendar. Well, calendar was listed as a dependency by the
previous maintainer, who I'm assuming knew what he was doing. I can't
personally confirm that the app doesn't work without it. You don't need
even the webmail chunk, let alone any of the more esoteric bits.
I did test it some more today. I have working three-way sync of my real
calendar and contacts - egroupware / desktop / laptop. Evolution seems
quite flaky at transferring large amounts of data all at once -
especially, for instance, trying to dump 50 contacts direct from a
Google calendar (accessed by CalDAV) into the egroupware calendar (also
accessed by CalDAV) tends to make it fall over. But I suspect that's as
much Evo as anything else, I don't think anyone's really stressed its
CalDAV capabilities much, and I'm running Rawhide. Once I got the data
in, in small enough lumps, it works fine.
I can't seem to make my Windows Mobile phone sync with the egroupware
server; it should be possible via the Funambol client for Windows
Mobile, which does SyncML synchronization. egroupware supports SyncML,
and this is the method upstream recommends for syncing with WM devices.
I can set it up and it claims to run correctly, but no data ever appears
on the phone. That's not really a big deal from the Fedora viewpoint,
though, it's not one of our requirements for the project and I'd guess
most Fedora people have Android phones or iPhones, not WM phones. I'll
probably give it a few more tries over the weekend or next week and see
if I can figure out what's wrong.
As you are doing testing right now, would it help to have a instance
here in fedora-infra so that we can figure out if it suites our needs?
