Package: evolution-data-server
Version: 3.16.5-1wri1
Severity: grave
Tags: patch
Justification: renders package unusable

Dear Maintainer,

The attached patch fixes a problem that occurs when libglib2.0-0 is upgraded
from 2.44.1 to the current 2.46.0. After the upgrade, Evolution can no longer
contact any Exchange server via evolution-ews, and mh-mail directories cannot
be found because the configuration reverts to default.

The problem also appears to exist in EDS 3.17.90.

The problem occurs because e-source-camel.c used various hacks that depend on
pre-2.45.7 gobject code. Those hacks no longer work, ultimately causing various
evolution config entries to revert to default and ignore all attempts to
correct the issue.

The patch has already been submitted upstream, but you may wish to add it now
to fix the problem until the upstream patch reaches the Debian source, since
evolution is essentially broken without the patch.

*Note*: the 1wri1 versions listed below include the patch as a local
modification.  Actual version without the patch would be the same but without
the 'wri1' local increment.
