Looks like only Table views can be edited, the various other types
can't be edited.

So it looks like the Edit button should be made insensitive for these
Comment 2 Dave Malcolm 2004-12-16 13:42:38 EST
The dialog in question is in the libgal2 package:

I tried a patch, but it looks like we need to add a new vtable entry
for GalViewClass: "is_editable" and patch libgal2 and evolution
accordingly; an ABI change.

(fixed in evolution-2.5.2-1, probably earlier)

* This problem will be resolved in a future major release of Red Hat Enterprise
Linux. Red Hat does not currently plan to provide a resolution for this in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux update for currently deployed systems.

With the goal of minimizing risk of change for deployed systems, and in response
to customer and partner requirements, Red Hat takes a conservative approach when
evaluating changes for inclusion in maintenance updates for currently deployed
products. The primary objectives of update releases are to enable new hardware
platform support and to resolve critical defects.
