Description of problem:
The last 2 times I've updated my fedora system the evolution upgrade caused me
to lose the contents on my Contacts folder.
I've tried removing the .summary file but that didn't help. The contacts are lost.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install Fedora B3
2. point up2date at rawhide or porkchop.redhat.com/test/yarrow-yum
3. up2date (including evolution)
Actual Results: contents of the Contacts folder are gone.
Expected Results: Contacts survive upgrade.
This has happened when going from 1.4.5-2 -> 1.4.5-5 and when going from 1.4.5-5
Additionally, I recreated the Contacts manually under 1.4.5-5 so I wouldn't
think there's any problems w/ version conflicts ...
Hmmm, I seem to still have all of my contacts. Are you just adding
them and then upgrading without exiting in between? If so, the wombat
might possibly get force killed on the new version starting before
things get synced to disk?
Well, it appears I'm not able to reproduce this. I reverted back to
1.4.5-2 and then upgraded to 1.4.5-5 - contacts still present. I then
up2dated via yum to 1.4.5-7, and the contacts were still there.
Not sure if I had evo open during updates, although I doubt it. And I
know I closed and re-opened evo after re-creating the contacts under
1.4.5-5, so they would have been written to disk.
Anyway, since this doesn't appear to be reproducable I'm closing this bug.
