Description Chris Kloiber 2002-08-10 02:32:02 EDT
In all current versions of evolution:

Seeing as there appear to be "no user servicable parts" inside, is there any
reason to not hide the ~/evolution directory as ~/.evolution so it will not show
up in nautilus and invite disaster (moving it to trash, for instance)
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2002-08-10 15:48:42 EDT
This will only get changed if it gets changed upstream.  There are too many
issues with migration and compatibility with upstream to do this.  Additionally,
the argument given upstream is that it contains your mail if using pop or the
like and so should be user accessible.
