Description of problem:
I recently put a patch into KDE's bugzilla at
(This patch is against kdepim and kdelibs)
This patch gives a sane sorting order for kaddressbook printing if you have an address book with many blank fields. Without this patch kaddressbook printing is totally broken if you have blank fields. The patch is on top of kdelibs-3.3.0 and kdepim-3.3.0. In the linux workstation cluster I admin here at the university we are running it without any problems. As I say in the comments to the patch, it might be too naive from a performance POV, but we do not experience any performance degradation at all. Some of my users (who use kaddressbook) are also very happy about the change.
I do not know when this will be incorporated upstream. The owner of the bug reacts sometimes fast, sometimes less so. In the meantime it would be nice if kaddressbook printing would be fixed.
Would you consider incorporating this into your distribution?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have an addressbook in which many contacts have one or two of
Given Name, Family Name, Formatted Name empty (blank)
2. Print that addressbook, sorting by any of those 3 categories
Actual Results: Notice that all contacts where the sorting category is empty are printed at the bottom in random order
Expected Results: The contacts with the empty sorting fields should be at the bottom but sorted by some reasonable other field that is not empty.
Fixed upstream, incorporated into fedora KDE packages, closing.
