As a follow up to calendar synchronisation with calypso,
syncevolution and the N900 running maemo I finally added contacts to
on the phone
When you have the calendar sync already running it's as simple as:
First start ssh on the n900 to ease typing:
apt-get install dropbear
echo /bin/sh >> /etc/shells
cd /etc/dropbear && ./run
SSH into the phone and configure contacts synchronization:
cat <<EOF > ~/.config/syncevolution/webdav/sources/addressbook/config.ini
backend = CardDAV
database = https://carddav.example.com/contacts/username
And perform the initial sync:
syncevolution --sync slow webdav addressbook
From there on you can sync contacts and calendars in one go with:
Looking at the calypso logs on the server it seems that syncevoluton
does not always generate an FN entry and so the card gets
skipped. This doesn't harm the overall sync, but I need to have a look
how to fix this.

In order to use the contacts im mutt there's pycarddav
packaged in Debian. This is basically following upstreams documentation.
sudo apt-get install pycarddav
mkdir -p ~/.config/pycard
cp /usr/share/doc/pycarddav/examples/pycard.conf.sample ~/.config/pycard/pycard.conf
# Edit file as needed
write_support = YesPleaseIDoHaveABackupOfMyData
To use the entries in mutt add the just extend your .muttrc:
cat <<EOF >>~/.muttrc
set query_command="pc_query -m %s"
macro index,pager B "<pipe-message>pycard-import<enter>" "add sender address to pycardsyncer"
This allows you to query contacts using Q and add new conatcs with
CTRL-B in mutt's index and pager.
We recently moved calypso's git repository to alioth and started
to merge several out of tree patches. More will happen during this
years Debian Groupware Meeting including a new upload to Debian.
