Implement full support for contact groups in address book plugins
|Reported by:||brandond||Owned by:|
The current code does not support contact groups in address book plugins or LDAP - only the default SQL address book. It would be nice if full contact group support was enabled.
I am attaching a patch that adds full contact group support. It was originally developed on r3561, but applies cleanly against at least r3569. I have tested it on a production system using both the default SQL address book and an in-house read-only address book plugin. I have not tested it with LDAP.
The current version does not allow mixing of contacts from one address book source into a group from a different source. You must copy the contact into the other address book, and then add it to the group. This could be automated, but I am OK with how it works for now.
I would appreciate this being merged ASAP, as it's a bit large to maintain out of tree for too long. Please let me know if there are any changes that I could make to speed acceptance.
