I also got the Contacts add-on from Labs working (limping, rather) in Thunderbird. Some very interesting ideas in that add-on.
I’ve also started reading some related work. Here’s what I’ve been gazing at for the past few days:
- Bug 674720 (WebContacts or Contacts+)
- The W3C Contacts API draft spec
- The PortableContacts draft spec
- The vCard spec
- The Firefox Sync development documents
So, basically, I’m exposing myself to as much current work in this problem space as possible. Is there anything else I should be reading?
