I don't think you can move Evolution to FE at the moment because, as
others have pointed out, there is (are) no readily available
replacements that have similar functionality
(email/calendar/tasks/memos/contacts).

This throws up a more interesting question: if Red Hat are not going to
assign an engineer to maintain Evolution, then how do non-Red Hat people
get involved in maintaining packages in FC?

Keith.

PS.  Evolution on FC5 works pretty well for me with an Exchange server
at work.  The only problem I repeatedly see is passing blank emails
through filters causes a crash.
