Package: evolution-data-server
Version: 3.12.0-1
Severity: grave
Tags: upstream
Justification: renders package unusable
Control: forwarded -1 https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=728976
Control: found -1 3.12.1-1

Dear Debian folks,

upgrading from Evolution Data Server 3.8.5 to 3.12.x it is impossible to
read messages. They are not shown.

Even building Evolution Data Server from the upstream branch
`evolution-data-server-3-12` with the commit below does not help.

    commit 4615a98c7be1e3f8d23aa8a1c4f43b9d1fb62712

        Remove unused imapx_unmark_folder_subscribed()

There are more issues like this reported in the GNOME Bugzilla, so spare
Jessie/testing users from the regular Evolution upgrade pain until
upstream fixes these issues.

As a workaround, downgrading the package `evolution-data-server` to the
version in Jessie and leaving Evolution at 3.12.1 works for me. The
downside is that several other GNOME packages have to be downgraded too.

        sudo aptitude -t testing install evolution-data-server=3.8.5-3
