#10 interoperability between abook and gammu


I hope this project will find a new maintener quickly. I will help to improve abook if possible...

What I mean whit this summary is just to have the possibility to import in abook, contacts i created in my phone, and after i completed (I'm feeling that's not the correct time...) them in abook, to export them on my phone.

I done some tests on debian etch with abook-0.5.6-3 and
gammu-1.08.00-1. I hope these versions make sense.

I created a new account named toto in my phone with all item completed and exported it with gammu as an ldif file. Here is the result :
dn: Toto
objectclass: top
objectclass: person
objectclass: organizationalPerson
objectclass: inetOrgPerson
objectclass: mozillaAbPersonObsolete
givenName: Toto
cn: Toto
telephoneNumber: 0101
fax: 0111
mobile: 0606
homePhone: 010
workPhone: 0106
mail: toto@toto.fr
homeurl: toto.fr
HomePostalAddress: 1 Rue Toto
Description: Totot
/*blank line in original file*/

I done the same kind of account with abook:
version: 1
dn: cn=toto,mail=toto@toto
cn: toto
mail: toto@toto
streetaddress: 1 rue toto
streetaddress2: 2 rue toto
locality: totocity
st: totoprovince
postalcode: 77110
countryname: totoland
homephone: 010
description: totot
homeurl: toto.fr
facsimiletelephonenumber: 0111
cellphone: 0606
xmozillaanyphone: 0106
xmozillanickname: totopseudo
objectclass: top
objectclass: person
/*blank line in original file*/

I tried hard to give the same information (except case, like in case sensitive) in each application. It seems clear that some items doesn't correspond.

Best regards

    Ldif filter was reworked in [2f827e] and field aliases were added.
    Please try.
    Side note: you may have more chance exporting to vcard if it fit your needs.
