Description Tiger!P 2007-11-04 09:40:37 UTC
Description of problem:
When using the --add-email argument for adding an email address to the 
addressbook it will remove additional information from all addressbook items 
that are available in the current addressbook. (Such as address, city, country 
etc.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
abook v 0.6.0pre2


How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use a addressbook file that has an entry with more than only a name and 
email (see attachment)

2. `echo "From: Genaro P. Best <genaro@example.com>" |abook --add-email` to add 
a new address to the addressbook
3. Now take a look at the ~/.abook/addressbook . Here all information that was 
present before step 2 has been removed except the name and email address
  
Actual results:


Expected results:

Comment 2 Tiger!P 2007-11-04 09:44:27 UTC
Sorry, I forgot the Actual results and other items.

Actual results:
The extra information about the first user has been removed.

Expected results:
All information about the first user is still in the addressbook and only the 
name and email of the new user have been added.

Additional info:
I think it version 0.5.6 does not have this problem.

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 14:58:59 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.

Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/release-notes/

Still not fixed, bumping to rawhide.

Comment 9 Bug Zapper 2010-03-15 11:56:58 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 13 development cycle.
Changing version to '13'.

preserve all fields by default

The problem described in this bug is caused by the option 'preserve_fields' which is documented in abookrc(5). The default was to preserve only standard fields and delete everything else. This is a very scary and surprising behaviour. This patch sets the default to preserve all fields ... No more surprises!

Comment 11 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2010-12-04 17:11:01 UTC
Thanks a lot for investigating this, Stephen. I applied a slightly different patch and an updated package is on its way.
