[Evolution] Bug#580293: Please remove dependency on gnome-pilot

Package: evolution
Version: 2.28.3-1+b1
Severity: normal
User: pkg-utopia-maintainers at lists.alioth.debian.org
Usertags: halectomy


please consider removing support for gnome-pilot(-conduits) from
evolution or at least demoting the recommends to suggests.
Palm PDAs are not that widespread anymore to justify that those packages
are installed by default. One of the downsides of gnome-pilot is, that
it pulls hal(libhal1) as dependency which we want to get rid of
eventually [1].

Thanks for considering,
