I've written some Python scripts to make it easier to work with
Evolution's configuration information, in the hope of automating mass
deployments of Evolution.
I've tested this, and had it working for an Evolution 2.0
suspect the approach will break under some circumstances, and with
different versions of Evolution. Comments and patches welcome.
Hey, this and Mark's LDAP gconf backend are a really nice start. What's
currently missing for my environment is PERSONALIZE_SERVERNAME as there
are god-knows-how-many different servers around the company.
It's possible to get the server name from AD by ldap query but it's in
format like this:
..where <server> is the real name of the server.
Maybe it'd be possible/worth adding support for that in the LDAP backend?
Somehow I doubt I'm the only one surrounded by Exchange servers, whether
we like it or not :)
