Description 2013-10-29 15:05:26 UTC
With issue 122365 the AOO dependency on ancient Seamonkey binaries is removed for AOO's security features. The Seamonkey binaries are still being used for providing some address books but these facilities are seriously outdated and often don't work anymore:
Bug 85356: authenticated LDAP didn't work since 2008
Bug 62370: Outlook/Windows address books containing Distribution lists don't work
Bug 91079: Outlook/Windows address books didn't work after WinXP

The address book integration for Evolution 1.x used the Seamonkey binary, but Evolution 2.0 and newer which has been released in 2004 uses a newer integration that doesn't depend on mozab. According to bug 116901 even this newer driver named evoab2 seems to need an update.
Comment 1 2013-10-29 15:38:18 UTC
Fixing the address book problems outlined above in the outdated Seamonkey binaries is much more effort than redoing the integrations using less heavy dependencies. Dropping the Seamonkey provided address books is the first important step.
