I'd be interested if there was a hackathon.
If the meeting ends up not being in the city, I am offering to have a
hackathon at Panera or somewhere else with free wireless with anyone who is

I'm open to suggestions, but I'd like to work on this:

I'm interested in trying to separate evolution as a hard dependency, and
adding support for thunderbird. Depending on time, also some bugfixes.

Anyone interested?
