In general, yes.
I can only speak in my behalf, but I expect Fedora to use the obsolete
0.11.8 simply because... it works. Having 0.12-test doesn't really
help much, if both evolution and kmail palm integration is dead.
By the sheer number of open bugs, It seems that I'm not alone.

I'm not pointing fingers... I'm just asking Fedora maintainers to
reconsider the decision to use 0.12 considering the CVS lock.
